Friday, April 17, 2020 is Haiku Poetry Day 2020. National Haiku Poetry Day National Haiku Poetry Day
Haiku Poetry Day encourages you to definitely try your hands at short, Japanese poems stay with a syllable pattern of 5-7-5 and you’re off and away to an excellent start – but it’s a lot more complex than that!To craft an ideal Haiku, you have to include some seasonality, along with a ‘cut’ (whether word or through punctuation) to produce a comparison between your styles and content from the haiku.

Surfing for wisdom
appliance repair haikus
for you, satori.
Asking for answers,
answer given, not believed.
Head too full of bone.
Dryer runs all day
clothes get warm, but wet remains.
Replace the vent now.
A lonely psycho
so desperate for women
he pees on his clothes.
Washer does not drain
the tub spins but water stays.
Check these: belt, pump, drain.
Does this constitute a Haiku?
Well, it follows the form of Haiku, but it is not a Haiku because of its subject matter. Haiku are largely based on nature, although some modern day poets of the form have used various other subject matters. Whether the later is still a Haiku though is a matter of opinion.
Also, keep in mind that no Haiku written in English is really a Haiku. The rules of Japanese poetry are based on 'onji' - a Japanese equiv. of the English syllable - although, once again, there are numerous English poets who still write Haiku in English.
