Haiku

Though I am Japanese,   I don’t know how to write Haiku.

 

Haiku - It is poetry structured in the set from 0f 17 syllables and arranged in groups of 5,7, and 5.

Haiku first made popular in Japan.

 

One of the greatest  Japanese Haiku poets was Matuo Basho (1644-94).

 

BASHO-HAIKU-WINTER-SOLITUDE

 

And here is an another sample of Basho’s haiku ;

 

   Spring morning marvel
      lovely nameless little hill
                           on a sea of mist

I’ve found some haiku poems about love and nature. 

  Refreshing and cool,
       love is a sweet summer rain
                 hat washes the world.

A bird flies sweetly
    on paper wings. Telling all
                 of my love for you.

 

Beautiful!!
