Nature (typically about nature or using seasonal references) Simple language (no need to be wordy; concise is always best) How to write a haiku Write of a specific event or observation; do not write in

general terms. Write in the present tense. Try to indicate the feelings of the poet as she/he is writing the poem. When describing an event, present it as an image. For example, the following is NOT a traditional haiku:

I watched the rain Drops as they splattered Into the puddle. As written by a 4th grade student, the same sentiment is expressed as haiku: Soft warm splattering Echoing in circles
