Haiku: The traditional Japanese haiku consists of three lines. The first line contains five syllables, the second line contains seven, and the last line five. The traditional subject-matter is a description of a location, natural phenomona, wildlife, or a common everyday occurrence. The haiku seeks to capture the qualities of experiencing the natural world uncluttered by “ideas.”

I have learned that an excellent haiku tells a story.

“The soul has illusions as the bird has wings; it is supported by them.”

Victor Hugo

  1. Beautifully captured. You are a mind reader by the way, because just the other day, I was trying to remember what made a haiku a haiku and now I know. Thanks!

  2. Haiku is (to me) the ultimate in short story poetry.
    I found your blog design very difficult to read. In fact black print on grey is unreadable.
    Over here from the A to Z!
