Haiku poems don't rhyme, but they do follow a pattern and can be written horizonally or vertically. Traditional haiku were often reflective of nature, but you can compose one about pretty much anything. To write a haiku in English, the simplest direction is to write your thoughts in 17 syllables, in three lines of 5-7-5.
