Today: Celebrate Haiku Poetry

April is National Poetry Month–a full month dedicated to the art of poetry. One of my favorite types of poetry happens to be the haiku. That’s why today I’m excited to celebrate National Haiku Poetry Day. It’s a day to celebrate a style of poetry originally from Japan that restricts the writer to three lines–the first line consists of five syllables, the second line has seven syllables and the third line has five syllables.

Why is the haiku my favorite poetry? Well, it’s like a word puzzle–you have to rearrange or think of different words to ensure that you follow the 5, 7, 5 rule. So, in celebration of one of my favorite types of poetry, I have decided to write a haiku about the one, and only, Big Frog 104.
