National Poetry Month – Haikus

Dear Jerry,

In honor of National poetry month, the crazy students of One Room have embraced the opportunity to let their minds go wild and use their imagination to come up with Haikus. You don’t have to be Japanese or a relative of Albert Einstein to write Japanese Poetry. This did surprise us; but with our wild imagination not limited, each student managed to come up with an exceptionally great Haiku in 5 minutes worth of time. Each Haiku emphasizes simplicity and puts the wonderful minds of the students on display expressing each individual personality in three lines; the first consisting of five syllables, the second seven, and the third five. Feel free to participate in National Poetry month yourself, if you haven’t already, it only takes a little inspiration and a wonderful mind to create a simple expressive poem.
