Describe the pattern for a traditional haiku poem?
Haiku is a 7-5-7.
What kind of a poem is The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe Is it a haiku sonnet or a shape form How can you tell?
I say, why not? :) It's another form of poetry which is essentially just another method of expressing yourself artistically. I personally think a good haiku is harder to write than a traditional poem because the author must convey his message or meaning in only 3 short lines. It's easy to describe the beauty of a sunset in three pages of text but to do it in 3 lines takes a special kind of writer!
