You’ve probably heard of haiku. Heck, you’ve probably written a haiku or two in grade school or high school. According to Wikipedia, haiku “is a very short Japanese poem with seventeen syllables and three verses. It is typically characterized by three qualities:

  1. The essence of haiku is “cutting” (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji (“cutting word”) between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.
  2. Traditional haiku consist of 17 on (also known as morae though often loosely translated as “syllables”), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 on, respectively. (An alternative form of haiku consists of 11 on in three phrases of 3, 5, and 3 on, respectively.)
  3. A kigo (seasonal reference), usually drawn from a saijiki, an extensive but defined list of such terms.”

Here are some examples from Basho Matsuo (1644-1694), considered the greatest haiku poet:

An old silent pond …

A frog jumps into the pond,

splash! Silence again.

Autumn moonlight-

a worm digs silently

into the chestnut.

Now, for some modern examples:

one dunks for a snail

By Sonia Sanchez, “Blues Haiku [let me be yo wil]”

blowing you all day.
