the Haiku Challenge

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.


let the challenge begin 🙂
