Forms of Poetry:
1. Concrete Poems: This type of poem uses line length to form a picture of an object/subject.
2. Haiku Poems: This type of poem is Japanese and consists of only 3 lines. The poem follows a pattern...
-Line 1: 5 syllables
-Line 2: 7 syllables

Haiku poems are usually about nature, though they can be written about any subject. Because of the syllables limitations, haiku is generally written in fragments.
