Look for end punctuation to tell you where each thought ends. Visualize- Hold fast to dreams

Often focusing on images from nature The Haiku is a traditional type of poetry that originated from Japan at the end of the 19th century. The beautiful nature of the Haiku was all started because of a man named Masaoka Shiki. Masaoka is widely recognized for reviving the traditional Japanese poetry form. He worked to loosen the strict rules of poetry because he felt that it put restrictions on its true beauty. Masaoka himself would often go on nature walks with his notebook to look for inspiration to write poems.

With everyone joining in. What is the main figurative language technique used here? Rhyme Rhyme is repetition of words at the ends of phrases. Words rhyme when their accented vowels and all letters that follow have identical sounds. Internal Rhyme: Rhyme that occurs within a line. End Rhyme: Rhyming words that are at the end a line.

From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won... End Rhyme Internal Rhyme -Rhyme within the poem -Rhyme at the end of a line Rhyme Scheme The pattern of end rhyme in a poem is called rhyme scheme. The pattern is charted by assigning a letter of the alphabet, beginning with the letter a, to each line. Lines that rhyme are given the same letter He'd have given me rolling lands,
Houses of marble, and billowing farms,
Pearls, to trickle between my hands, smoldering rubies, to circle my arms. a b a b Try to find the Rhyme Scheme Try to find the rhyme scheme
