Byron Bay – Writing Haikus – 8 November 2021

Haiku Scaled

Last week the class showed how talented they were by writing some beautiful haikus.

A haiku is a type of Japanese poem that is only three lines long but aims to paint a photograph in words.

Haikus traditionally have a set number of syllables per line; 5 in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third.

After looking at a number of haikus and discussing them, it was time for students to unleash their creativity and write their own.

Here are some of the best:


Don’t wanna wake up

Please bond blankets and body

Morning in winter


Caught the last wave

in the last light of the day

breathe the air away


Morning in winter

It is very cold and dark

You can see white snow.


Life in the city

It’s always busy, busy

no one knows no one.


Watching the sunrises

Sitting on a cold rock, and

birds fly from the trees
