Happiness Haiku



In this show John passes along the idea of a Happiness Haiku. A Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry traditionally expressing a single feeling or impression – in this case Happiness.

He didn’t mention it but usually a Haiku and contains three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables, respectively. Read more details at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haiku
