Haiku poems about dogs

I have a long list of haiku written by haiku poets in which haiku appear in the last line.

Today I’ll be starting with the first haiku with an explicit haiku in the last line. It’s by John M. Harsha. “The puppy’s paw” has 4 syllables, but it has only 3 syllables, not a full 5. The missing syllable is “t-i-p”. The second syllable is “t-i” and the first syllable is “p-y”. The last syllable is “o-u”. That’s where the extra syllable comes in.

Today I’ll be starting with the first haiku with a dog in the last line. It’s by William E. Robinson. “The white dog waits” has 4 syllables, but it has only 3 syllables, not a full 5. The missing syllable is “u-i-p”. The second syllable is “p-y” and the first syllable is “h-e”. The last syllable is “s”.

A friend of mine, who is also a haiku poet, recently shared with me her haiku of a dog. She called it “The dogs run”. She included it in my haiku thread. It has 3 syllables in the last line, but it is a full 5 syllables.

Today I’ll be adding a number of haiku in which dogs do run, or are doing something else, or just waiting in various situations. They are a part of all those haiku, but since they are the last line in those haiku, they seem like it makes sense to have them on their own thread.

This may seem to contradict what I said earlier about haiku not containing full rhymes. I said we didn’t want to have full rhymes in haiku. We would allow only one syllable rhymes, but that didn’t mean we could leave out the last syllable in the last line. We have to have a complete, five syllable line.

Today I will be sharing a few haiku of dogs. I will start with the first line of this haiku, “Buck”, by William E. Robinson. “Buck eats” has 5 syllables, not a full 6 syllable line.

Today I’ll be sharing with you some of my pet haiku, and one of them is the haiku that makes me the happiest. “Ome” is the haiku by William E. Robinson. In it is the perfect example of where the extra syllable can go.

I hope you enjoy these haiku, and learn a bit about them.

One of my favorite poems from Japan

A perfect poem. It just shows how even though it is a Japanese poem, and the use of the haiku does a very good job at showing this. I actually did a series of haiku with the Japanese text. “Japanese Haiku” is the title. When I got to the end I said to myself, “I wonder if I can make that into a haiku.” Then I started to think about the English words of the haiku and what it would say if it were written in English. When I was done, it made me smile, and I knew then and there it had been done. My favorite part is the last line, “The haiku is a Japanese poem.” One of the things I really love about haiku is how powerful it is to show the way people think.

A short introduction to haiku

I am going to show you a short introduction to haiku. I don’t really know how to teach poetry, but you might as well learn something. If you want more information on haiku, you might try this site from The Library of Congress. I also found a great website about haiku at this site, I just linked to it. I think I have said too much. I might need to back up and just link the site. This is the site for the International Association of Poets. (http://www.poets.org/faq/) As for what haiku is, it is a Japanese poetic form. It has a limit of 17 syllables. The syllables go like this, “ka,” “ki,” “ku,” “ku,” and so on. Sometimes it adds a “go” to make a “ku-go”, or “kui-go.” A ka and a go are a sound you use for the vowel “i.” This is called the “nose” of the syllable. The idea of a sound is very important in this form. The main point is that you have a sound that is used in speech and you have a sound that is used to stop something. In other words, it is a pattern of sounds.

This is all I have for you right now, but if you are interested, I will continue writing. If you ever have any questions, just let me know.
