From Haiku Heights
- Haiku is Japanese poetry form that has three meaningful lines which are complete and reflecting nature.
- Haiku have syllabic limitations as well. Syllables and words aren’t the same thing. For e.g. the single word “traditional” would have four syllables since it’s pronounced “tra-di-tio-nal”.
- A traditional haiku has eleven or seventeen syllables, in a strict 3-5-3 or 5-7-5 format.
- You can write either a haiku, senryu (haiku related to emotions), haiga (haiku on picture) or haibun (story with haiku).
