Haiku How to for Heidi

Probably the most simple form of haiku is the common:
5-7-5. That is, the first line has five syllables, the second has seven syllables and the third line has five syllables. Usually the subject has a reference to season. Daffodils--spring. Mosquitos--summer. Falling leaves--autumn. Snow--winter. It is a Japanese form of poetry. But, it is not just poetry...it is recording of an experience as well. A favorite theme is nature. If you would go to a search engine, you could find a wealth of inspiration and history. Try it, you'll like it.
