Trying to pass boredom and the lull as Winter Vacation approaches and also fulfill my half of the bulletin board decorations. I figured an appropriate and easy to understand activity would be creating some Haikus. Perhaps even more popular or parodied in American culture, these quintessentially Japanese poems a typically written to coincide with the season. It’s yet to feel quite like any winter I’ve experienced, so I created a couple to get in the festive mood.
The instructions are quite simple–I even typed them out in Japanese–unfortunately, no one has come up with anything yet…
Winter Haikus / 冬の俳句
- 3 sentences long / 3文です。
- About nature / 自然についてです。
- 5-7-5 syllables / 5-7-5音節です。
