Haiku - Add Yours
« on: November 24, 2018, 19:59:05 »
"Haiku" is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

Gary, thank you for starting a intriguing thread!

Unfortunately I won't be able to post any until December 7th or so because my D750 is under repair now due to its release button issue.   :o :o :o

I'm enjoying the posts not only because of the images but also because of the various interpretations of "haiku".

Strictly speaking, "haiku" is three lines but the lines should basically consist of five, seven and five syllables respectively.  But, of course, that is only possible with Japanese for the poem to make any sense.

The number syllables Gary mentions doesnt correspond with Akira's haiku,
So whatsup here?
