I am writing as i create the poem so you know what is going through my mind- remember 5-7-5 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku good explanation http://translate.google.com/?hl=en exellent tool to translate and count the syllables to be a haiku, three lines and they must count 5-7-5 Yes- se-ven-teen sounds 5 1 2 3 4 5 five, se-ven, five you ar- rive 7 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 al-lude to sea-son 5 1 2 3 4 5 that has to be the worst haiku i ever wrote. sorry, and refer to a season On craigslist, no matter where you live, is a haiku category you might ask for help there funny stuff- people trying to communicate with these haiku limitations most don't even know what a haiku is....its ok harmless stuff I used google translate page and it helped a lot- and its biggest problem is that the plural or singular has variable syllalbe counts.... So all during your reation, you will be going back and forth to add or remove a syllable to make the format or haiku 5-7-5 ok ok for the French Class- i would use these ideas and words: Sugar maple green tree leaves spring or Fall ( a seasonal reference is part of Haiku) here's one i will make for you the first line has to have five sounds or syllables line one: In spring, maple trees burst 5 Au printemps, les érables à l'éclatement -oops in french, there are too many syllables for the haiku form,,, nine, ? so i think i will remove the burst 'words'(à l'éclatement) and place it on the next line.... or not it won't fit...sorry going bak to... google translate page: http://translate.google.com/?hl=en I wrote in spring maple trees in french: Au printemps, les érables -oops, six or seven syllables and i only need five for the first line.....so maybe i will use it for the second line, Au printemps, les érables - Going back to the first ine of five sounds,,,,, I originally wrote: line 2: out in fresh bright chartreuse 7 so I will use this line for line one,,,,translating at google, be bak... à l'état frais lumineux chartreuse opps again....too many syllables,,, i am removing some to make five syllables: taking out 'fresh ' (frais) and bright( lumineux) lets read it with out those ... à l'état chartreuse= the 'state of chartreuse' poetic license here going on to line 3: five syllables and we are done... line 3: Bitter leaves, sweetest sap Feuilles amères, sucrées sève wow this one has five, like we need... here is the new poem Au printemps, les érables ( in spring, the trees, i know it has six syllables, you can work it out to make it five, try a singular maple) à l'état chartreuse ( in a state of chartreuse/green) Feuilles amères, sucrées sève (Leaves bitter sweet sap) you will have to work with the french translation to get the right count. I really love the way google translate page helps this assignment good luck, wait,,, google translate tolde me to write this: bonne chance another thing, trust ath the haiku has an organic way of makaing the wrods and the meaning magnify and have many other, over-lappping meanings to what you originally thought- get ready for greatness. wrtie your poem in English and then translate at the google translate page.......

There is excellent information about haiku in Wikipedia with many examples. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku The Japanese traditional haiku is 5-7-5 as you have shown. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku_in_En... Th Japanese characters in 5-7-5 show much more than English words. They are more expressive, and if translated exactly, the syllable count would be different. The important aspect of Japanese haiku is that it is a description of a picture. There should be none of the writer's perception or senses in it. Haiku in its pure form is Japanese 3 line poetry made up of 5-7-5 syllables. It is not to include any of the poet's emotions, but it is the poet's job to take a picture with words only; a poem of nature. To become a haiku writer, you first, IMO, need to write as the Japanese do. One of the reasons it was Americanized is that 17 syllables in Japanese symbols says much more than 17 syllables in words. This is not a true haiku because this poetic form does not ask a question any more than an Ansel Adams photograph does. Beneath the oak tree Frank writes his view of nature the page is blank - clouds? .

I recommend reading some of the excellent haiku resources at the website ahapoetry.com . Among other things, you will learn that most serious English-language haiku poets don't follow the 5-7-5 so-called "rule", and you will find out that there are other elements of haiku that are much more fundamental and important than any supposed syllable count. I have no idea why teachers perpetuate this 5-7-5 rule while ignoring the much more important aspects of haiku.

in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 (syllables) on respectively, and typically containing a seasonal reference. In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English usually appear in three lines

Uria Originally Answered: Can you give me your best example of a poem that makes a philosophical point? A haiku, a sonnet, or ode?
What about the classic line from Shakespeare about, "To be or not to be...whether 'tis nobler..." Sorry, I don't think it's any kind of a poem; but rather a soliloquy from either " Hamlet" or "MacBeth". Is this for a class? How about Robert Frost's proverbial, "Stopping By Woods on a Snowey Evening"---"...promises to keep; but I have miles to go before I sleep." I lost my set of world's greatest poetry years ago....and, that former housemate had promised to get it back to me. "Philosophic" is defined as: "calmly reasonable, bearing unavoidable misfortune unemotionally." in my copy of the Oxford American Dictionary. So, I think I'll stick with what I've already typed in here.
