Up until now, I’ve only written traditional haiku. In truth, this is because I like the structure. There are 17 syllables in a three-line format with the first and last lines composed of five syllables and the middle line consisting of seven.



Bouncin’ and Behavin’ Poems is a platform for anyone who wants to learn about or share their poetry. No one is better than anyone else, and no one is here to be judged. Write poetry, read poetry, and enjoy the journey. That’s all we ask.
