Haiku

Source : http://www.surfnetkids.com/haiku.htm...

Haiku is a Japanese form of poetry consisting of seventeen syllables in three lines. The first line contains five syllables, the second has seven, and the third returns to five syllables. Traditionally, they also have some reference to the seasons and nature, but many times this requirement is ignored in English-language haiku. Here's one from a Threadless.com t-shirt that I can't seem to get out of my mind. "Haikus are easy / But sometimes they don't make sense / Refrigerator."
