Poetic Math

Today I learned about poetry.

What does that have to do with math? Well, let's see!

Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry that consists of three phrases. The first phrase contains five syllables, the second phrase contains seven syllables, and the third contains five syllables. That makes a total of seventeen syllables. The phrases do not have to rhyme.

I wrote my first haiku and it goes like this:

My name is Miles.
I like to solve math problems.
I am a good boy.

Not bad if I do say so myself.

Have you ever written a haiku? If so, send it to me and I will post it.
