Haiku Sonnet

A form invented by David Marshall.  Mr. Marshall is an amazing poet, teacher and artist.

The form is based on the “traditional” syllabic method of writing haiku in English.  It consists of four 5-7-5 syllable haiku “stanzas,” followed by a couplet with a syllable count of 7-5.

Some examples of mine can be found here.

I recommend going directly to the source to see what can be done with the form.  His blog derelict satellite has hundreds of examples of the form that make mine look like doggy drool.

  1. Thanks for pointing the way to a new blog and poetic form. One of the forms I came up with for my students was the Fibku. It combines the Haiku with the Fibonacci sequence. I have a Fibku tag on Implied Spaces and a page on Fibku on my Dark Pines Blog.
