Haiku poetry challenge

We have been learning about Haiku poems in class today. We have learnt that a Haiku poem is a Japanese poem with three sentances in it, but in the 1st and 3rd sentence have only 5 syllables and the 2nd 7 syllables. Here are some great examples that we found on the Internet.

Perspective, perspective, perspective

In the senior unit, we have been having some amazing discussions on the importance of putting events into perspective. We all find that when something happens, we think it is the end of the world. However, it is important to gauge the severity of the event by comparing your event to other possible events. For example, is not sitting next to your friend as bad as being diagnosed with a major illness such as cancer. We have been exploring how our thinking can led to a feeling. That feeling leads to an action. People can change how we think. This will change how we feel and act. Here is a reminder of our discussion.
