A haiku is a form of poetry (originating from Japan) that is made up of 17 syllables. Syllables are the number of breaks in a word. For example, Miss Pauley is THREE syllables. Traditionally, the form for a haiku goes like this:
Running down the hall,
a fourth grader blindly bumped
into Mister Bartz.
