Haikus are easy but sometimes they don’t make sense Refrigerator What is Haiku?  A short Japanese poem:  a form of Japanese poetry with 17 syllables in  three unrhymed  lines of five, seven, and five syllables , often describing nature or a season Haiku-poems can describe almost anything, but you seldom find themes which are too  complicated for normal PEOPLE's recognition and understanding. Some of the most thrilling  Haiku-poems describe daily situations in a way that gives the reader a brand new experience of  a well-known situation. The metrical pattern of Haiku   Haiku-poems consist of respectively 5, 7 and 5 syllables in three units. In japanese, this  convention is a must, but in English, which has variation in the length of syllables, this can  sometimes be difficult.  The technique of cutting.   The cutting divides the Haiku into two parts, with a certain imaginative distance between the two  sections, but the two sections must remain, to a degree, independent of each other. Both  sections must enrich the understanding of the other.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
