Haiku is adopted all over the world in many languages and many cultures. In Japan and else where in the world, modern haiku is increasingly unlikely to follow the tradition of 17 syllables or take nature as the sole object but juxtaposition continues to be honored.
English Haiku is a three-line poem usually written with 7 to 11 syllables
(but not always) with two ideas or images juxtapostioned. Haiku packs a big punch in its compact form.
I hope you like them. I love to write Haiku. I will be adding new Haiku creations regularly so please visit my posts on right side of this blog under “posts.”
