Explain to participants that a haiku is a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons. Although a haiku is a type of poem, they rarely rhyme. Here is an example from the American poet Richard Wright…

Whitecaps on the bay:

In the April wind.

Notice the syllables for each line; 5, 7, 5.
