Mik_Mikson Posted January 25, 2010 A Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry where the only rule is that it must consist of only three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 syllables on each line respectively. Here are a few Haikus as some examples (not by me): Haiku's are easy But they don't always make sense, Refrigerator by unknown Worker bees can leave. Even drones can fly away. The Queen is their slave. by Chuck Palahniuk An old silent pond... A frog jumps into the pond, splash! Silence again. by Basho Matsuo who is known as the first great poet of Haiku. Over the wintry forest, winds howl in rage with no leaves to blow. by Natsume Soseki who is considered the Charles Dickens of Japan. Feel free to share some Haiku with us!
