Haikus are short poems written on topics and things that the readers could identify with easily. For example, seasons and animals are readily recognizable topics to the readers. There are normally three lines with lines one and and three having five syllables, and line two having seven.

Red-yellow-pink blooms

Colors  announce spring's arrived

Hummingbird flitters


Bevy of otters

Journey to lake - pups romp - raft

Return to holt too soon


Ducklings and goslings

Testing wobbly legs and wings

Snapping turtle waits



Shade trees, blankets and picnics

Dog days of summer


Brisk winds reminder

Leaves swirling incessantly

Winter approaches


Bundled up in wool

Staying warm never easy

Hibernation time
