A Haiku (in the English language) is a short poem which uses imagistic language to convey the essence of an experience of nature or the season intuitively linked to the human condition. It is a development of the Japanese haiku poetic form in the English language. Some of the more common practices in English include: use of three lines of up to 17 syllables; most commonly, 5, 7, 5. Haiku uses an economy of words to paint a multi-tiered painting, without “telling all”.
