    I'm sorry, Jack Kerouac. I love you, but your Haiku is a fail. Line 1-presents a problem. Line 2- solves it. Line 3- shows thankfulness. (Report) Reply

    This is not a correctly written Haiku. Line 1-pose a grievance or issue. Line 3- thankfulness. Line 2- connects both and 3. Line 1 and 3-five syllables. Line 2- seven syllables. (Report) Reply

    I always knew the traditional syllable count, but did not understand the structure further than that. Or that this was the only " type" of haiku anyway.

    Can I ask you something? Are you speaking of the traditional haiku? Because I have read there are many different versions of the haiku. I would like to understand this more efficiently.

Haiku Poems

  1. Distressed Haiku

    In a week or ten days the snow and ice will melt from Cemetery Road. I'm coming! Don't move! Once again it is April. Today is the day we would have been married twenty-six years. I finished with April halfway through March. You think that their dying is the worst thing that could happen. Then they stay dead. Will Hall ever write lines that do anything but whine and complain? In April the blue mountain revises from white to green. The Boston Red Sox win a hundred straight games. The mouse rips the throat of the lion and the dead return.

  2. Haiku (The Low Yellow...)

    The low yellow moon above the Quiet lamplit house.

  3. Haiku (The Taste...)

    The taste of rain —Why kneel?

  4. Collection Of Six Haiku

    Waking in the night; the lamp is low, the oil freezing. It has rained enough to turn the stubble on the field black. Winter rain falls on the cow-shed; a cock crows. The leeks newly washed white,- how cold it is! The sea darkens; the voices of the wild ducks are faintly white. Ill on a journey; my dreams wander over a withered moor.
