haikus are a type of japanese (i think) poetry, they're really simple, and don't need to rhyme. They're typically used almost like an ode to nature, and typically they have something in them that incroperates the season.

here is how it works:

First: five syllables
Second: seven syllables
third: five syllables

(if you look at that, my example is a haiku)

or this

Like a shooting star
A gold leaf falls to the ground
And goes unnoticed

Haikus, yay!!


So many stories
Life must have much more to see
I cannot sit still

Story Haiku...

Fighting to the death
Cruel feeders call this a "sport"
Soon enough I win

Placed back in a cup
Why did it have to be me?
Did he have to die?

I watch the feeders
Their faces with twisted grins
Exchanging money

Does life have a price?
Is that what my life is worth?
To make a quick buck?

I truly hate it
My life no more than a game
I hope the end comes

For now, I still live
Torn fins, heart racing, I thrive
I wait patiently

I need a savior
From the claws of cruel man
I wait patiently

They approach again
Scoop - Splash! A new opponent.
Let the round begin
