Overview

Haiku, a mere breath of poetry, is a linguistic snapshot that captures a simple moment. The tone can be playful or wistful, elegant or earthy, mournful or lyrical. Its content, in the words of the authors, is "ordinary, quotidian, often playful, a haiku sees directly, it touches things in the stillness of the mind: trees in the rain, an autumn leaf that falls, a small child carrying a huge loaf." With its short form and engaging content, haiku is the ideal instrument for a first exploration of poetic composition in any language.
