Accordingly, the first line must have five syllables, the second line seven syllables, and the third line five syllables. With these poems, a picture is drawn in a few words. Because of their simplicity, authors are forced to focus on the basics solely, making every word-or even syllable-matter. This is a practice of artistic discipline.

Haiku Poems Examples

“The Old Pond” by Matsuo Bashō

Furu ike ya

kawazu tobikomu

mizu no oto


An old silent pond

A frog jumps into the pond—

Splash! Silence again.

One of the four greatest Haiku masters, Matsuo Basho, provided this classic example. Haikus are a traditional Japanese form of poetry that originated in Japan. Hokkus are group poetry that adhere to the 5/7/5 formula. A kireji, or "cutting word," (such as "Splash!"), is used to divide them. They are supposed to comment on the season or the writers' surroundings and to generate some type of contrasting vision.

The other sample is “A World of Dew” by Kobayashi Issa. 

A world of dew,

And within every dewdrop

A world of struggle.

Sometimes, the kireji occasionally appears at the conclusion of a haiku to give it a feeling of closure. This moving poem by Kobayashi Issa, another outstanding Haiku master, inserts the kireji near the end. Issa's haiku does not adhere to the 5/7/5 rule when translated, yet it still has impact.

Now, let's examine the other poem which is “Lighting One Candle” by Yosa Buson.

The light of a candle

Is transferred to another candle—

Spring twilight

Haikus concentrates on a fleeting instant in time, contrasting two pictures to provide an unexpected sense of enlightenment. The haiku master Yosa Buson's poem of a single candle to the starry amazement of the spring sky is a wonderful illustration of this.

Well, the other sample is “A Poppy Blooms” by Katsushika Hokusai. 

I write, erase, rewrite

Erase again, and then

A poppy blooms.

There are four haiku poets known as "the Great Four" in this type of poetry that spread from Japan to the world: Matsuo Basho, Kobayashi Issa, Masaoka Shiki and Yosa Buson. The artworks of these poets still serve as examples for haiku poems today. The other important name is Natsume Soseki, a famed novelist and contemporary of Shiki, who also wrote haiku.

Reading through samples of haiku poems is a great way to get inspired and comfortable with this style of poetry and the sensory language it employs.

Following the traditional 5-7-5 haiku pattern, there are five "moras" in the first, third, and second lines and seven in the second. A mora is a sound unit that resembles a syllable but differs from it. Since not every English word has the same amount of syllables, or moras, as its Japanese counterpart, this rhythm is sometimes lost in translation. For instance, a haiku has two syllables in English and three in Japanese.

Haiku Poems about Nature 5-7-5

Three lines of five, seven, and five syllables each make up the haiku, an unrhymed poetry form. Although it wasn't given the term haiku until the 19th century, the haiku initially appeared in 17th-century Japanese literature as a brief response to complex poetry traditions.
