National Haiku Day Challenge

Today is NATIONAL HAIKU DAY! A haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. Haikus do NOT rhyme and are made up of 3 lines with 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. 

I’m celebrating NATIONAL HAIKU POETRY DAY with a challenge.  This is for kids, parents, teachers, or anyone that wants to try their hand at writing a haiku. Your challenge is to create a “Home Haiku” about anything relating to our time at home during this quarantine. 

Your haiku can be SERIOUS …

or FUNNY …

No rhyming! Just 3 lines with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5.

Leave your haiku in the comments and/or send it to @WhitehouseSus on twitter with #HomeHaiku. The best “Home Haikus” will be made into fun graphics like the ones above and featured here next week!

Happy Haiku Day!
