5 Minutes To Change Your LIFE in 14 Days - Day 12
As the name suggests, Haiku originated in Japan a few hundred years ago.

It is a very simple form of poetry and is easy to learn.

It is used to express a moment in time – usually the present.

Haiku has minimal punctuation and is made up of 17 syllables over three lines.

There are 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second line and 5 in the third.

How hard can that be?
