What is a silly haiku?
A haiku is a Japanese poem! One of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7,… and 5 syllables.There has been confusion between the three related terms Haiku, Hokku and Haikai, since early days.Hokku literally means "starting verse", and was the first starting link of a much longer chain of verses known as haika.Because the hokku set the tone for the rest of the poetic chain, it enjoyed a privileged position in haikai poetry, and it was not uncommon for a poet to compose a hokku by itself without following up with the rest of the chain. The creation of the term haiku came about largely through the efforts of Masaoka Shiki, who began a reform of this style of poetry in 1892 after which it became established as a new form to be written, read and understood as an independent poem, complete in itself, rather than part of a longer chain. In the perspective of the history of haikai the famous verses of such Edo-period (1600-1868) masters as Basho, Yosa Buson, and Kobayashi Issa are properly referred to as hokku even though they are now generally read as independent haiku. The terms Classical Haiku and Modern Haiku are used to distinguish between hokku and haiku. Shiki's reform did not change two traditional elements of haiku: the division of 17 syllables into three groups of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.the inclusion of a seasonal theme. Shiki's reform was carried further with two proposals by Kawahigashi Hekigoto:Haiku would be truer to reality if there were no center of interest in it.The importance of the poet's first impression, just as it was, of subjects taken from daily life, and of local colour to create freshness. Example: Haikus are like this: five, seven, five syllables nature images
first line 5 syllables second line 7 syllables third line 5 syllables
They are poems, originally from Japan, with seventeen syllables. Traditionally, the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven and third line has again five.
3 lines first line, 5 syllables second line, 7 syllables third line, 5 syllables In English, Haiku is written in three lines with each line having an exact number o…f syllables. The first line contains five syllables, line two contains seven syllables, and line three contains five syllables. In Japanese, Haiku also has three parts, but can be written as one line. And instead of counting syllables, the Japanese count sounds. Haiku is required to 'suggest' a single season somehow. It might be directly, by using a word like 'blossom' for Spring, or 'snow' for Winter, or indirectly, by tone, imagery or pace.

Yes, a haiku poem can have periods.
haiku's are easy but they often don't make sense. refrigerator!
No. While a haiku is a type of japanese poetry, there is no need for any phrases to rhyme within the haiku itself. Instead of focusing on rhyming, haikus focus on 17-sylla…ble lines consisting of three sets of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.
5 syllabal 7 sylybales 5 sylybales
5 First Line 7 Second line 5 Last Line
A Haiku Oftenly is about Nature but it can be about anything. But as a teacher, in my class we work on Haikus about Nature. So its optional.
the haiku was originated from Japanese poetry.
Haikus are little Japanese poems about nature. They have three lines, the first line is five syablles, the second line is seven syablles and the last line is five syablles.
yes but the format is supposed to be 5 then 7 in the middle then 5! ex: Do you like to eat? I like to eat potatoes! They taste good with cheese that is a haiku about food it… fits the 5x7x5 format most haikus are about nature though!
a haiku is a Japanese poem that has only 3 lines. each line has to have only a certain amount of syllables, the first line has 5, the second lines has 7, and the third has 5. …most are written about nature, but they can be written about anyhting really.
