Haiku are brief poems of seventeen syllables, usually with five each in the first and last lines, and seven in the middle:

winds bring petals of cherry

—Basho

Jo Rowling’s books provide many great examples for inspiration in this ancient Asian form of poetry:

Flint with the Quaffle—
passes Spinnet— passes Bell—
hit hard in the face
