Haiku on The Nature of Haiku

Haiku Defined

3 lines, 2 spaces,
17 feet to walk thru;
then, the unending

Haiku Discovered

a poem unfolds
as words take their place in line
this one’s a haiku

Art of the Haiku

do away with words
and you’ll have a way with words
speak less and say more

When Writing Haiku

trim off excess words
expose the bones of meaning
enter Truth deeply
