Haiku Poems...You remember them right? They are usually the first poems students are taught to write because they are simplistic yet powerful.  

In case you have forgotten your Haiku lessons, here's a quick refresher from Creative Writing Now:

 "Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader's mind. It is like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself. Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line."

For some reason this poetic form came to mind the other day so I decided to write one in honor of our Night Jewels. LOL! Here goes...
