What are Haikus?
A haiku is a Japanese poem! One of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7,… and 5 syllables.There has been confusion between the three related terms Haiku, Hokku and Haikai, since early days.Hokku literally means "starting verse", and was the first starting link of a much longer chain of verses known as haika.Because the hokku set the tone for the rest of the poetic chain, it enjoyed a privileged position in haikai poetry, and it was not uncommon for a poet to compose a hokku by itself without following up with the rest of the chain. The creation of the term haiku came about largely through the efforts of Masaoka Shiki, who began a reform of this style of poetry in 1892 after which it became established as a new form to be written, read and understood as an independent poem, complete in itself, rather than part of a longer chain. In the perspective of the history of haikai the famous verses of such Edo-period (1600-1868) masters as Basho, Yosa Buson, and Kobayashi Issa are properly referred to as hokku even though they are now generally read as independent haiku. The terms Classical Haiku and Modern Haiku are used to distinguish between hokku and haiku. Shiki's reform did not change two traditional elements of haiku: the division of 17 syllables into three groups of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.the inclusion of a seasonal theme. Shiki's reform was carried further with two proposals by Kawahigashi Hekigoto:Haiku would be truer to reality if there were no center of interest in it.The importance of the poet's first impression, just as it was, of subjects taken from daily life, and of local colour to create freshness. Example: Haikus are like this: five, seven, five syllables nature images
first line 5 syllables second line 7 syllables third line 5 syllables
The rules are there are 3 lines. 5 syllables in the first line 2nd line has 7 syllables the third line has five Like this: You make me feel great so sweet my favor…ite treat i truly love you -xx32
Well, first of all, you need to think of what you want to write about. Lets, for example take the subject of snowflakes. You then need to do the FIRST line. This ha…s a total syllable count of 5 Syllables, and generally introduces your subject. SO, we could do: The snow-flakes Flu-tter, 1 2 3 4 5, THEN, you do the second line, which has the SEVEN syllables, this is sort of maybe a description of the subject. To the ice - ing dus - ted ground, 1 2 3 4 5 6 7, And finally, you do the ending line. This is normally summing it up, and had FIVE syllables. Like gen - tle bloss - om. 1 2 3 4 5.
No it can be whatever you put in it as long as you use the correct format.
Haikus can be about everything (1), anything (2) or nothing (3). The key to a haiku is the measure, not the content. It does not even need to rhyme. (1) Everything, or T…he entire Universe, Reflection of God (2) A Haiku poem can be about a season, for example: Autumn is now here red, orange, yellow and brown leaves are falling down (3) Bored, and I can't write a good haiku anymore. I'm going to bed
Birds are innocent, Except when they are loaded. Sometimes sh*t happens.
