Cuyamaca College Artistic Haiku Poem Discussion

Instructions:

Your Discussion Board experience will come in three parts:

Part 1: Find a piece of art that will inspire your poem. Attach the photo to your thread. Avoid using huge file sizes, they may not upload into Canvas.

Part 2: Post your Haiku. Be sure to be descriptive. If you see the opportunity to implement the Visual Toolbox and Principles of Design you may do so. Make sure that the poem that you post is your very own. Be sure to tell us the name of the artist and the title of the artwork below or besides the attached image.

Part 3: Respond to a minimum of two other student Posts.

Create your Haiku:

A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It is like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.

Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line.

Line 1 = 5 syllables

Line 2 = 7 Syllables

Line 3 = 5 Syllables

Sample Haiku:

The last winter leaves
Clinging to the black branches

Explode into birds.
