Haikus at EC Toronto

Do you know what a haiku is? It’s a traditional form of Japanese poem, always 3 lines, with a rhythm of 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line, and 5 syllables in the last line. Sounds difficult to write? Actually, it was no problem for Derek’s Low Intermediate class at EC Toronto to write their own English haiku this week. And here are a few examples:

Really missing him

And the way he looked at me

By the Christmas tree.

*   *   *

Love is a feeling

Invisible like spring mist

But strong like iron.

*   *   *

I still remember

That wonderful snowy night

Always on my mind.

*   *   *

Well done everyone! Are you thinking it would be awesome to be able to write like that in English? You can come to study at EC Toronto and learn!

We look forward to welcoming you any Monday!
