Haiku has been called “unfinished” poetry because each one requires the reader to finish it in his/her heart.
Unlike Western poems, haiku generally don’t rhyme.
Haiku poets may write poems that are just a short fragment with three or fewer words.
Try writing a “mini-haiku” with 3–5–3 syllables.
Draft and redraft every poem until the meaning is perfectly expressed.
Haiku are about moments of objective experience, not subjective interpretation or analysis of those events.
