Default Haiku

Haiku

I always fancy a Haiku thread for us to get together and

share our words, so here is one.

This short poem is Japanese in origin and has strict syllable count on each of three lines: 5 7 5. It is most frequently about nature.
Here is one for example. NOTE, NO PUNCTUATIONS NEEDED

fall is beautiful
mother nature turns golden
the colour of dreams

So,
  1. Haiku consists of three lines as the first rule.
  2. First line must be five syllabus, disregard of words use
  3. Second line must be seven syllabus
  4. Third line must be five syllabus as completion.
am I right?

Default some guidelines

alrite, what is Haiku?
Haiku, as the name suggested, originated from Japan. It comes in 17-syllables form with the metric of 5, 7, 5 syllables. Haiku-poems describe almost anything but most importantly is the poet's first impression of subjects taken from..say daily life.. colours, shape, smell, feelings, sound, actions.. that gives reader a new view and fresh perception of things that they know of.. these create the freshness of forms and words that Haiku is famous of. consider this simple Haiku that telss about loneliness by Basho Matsuo:

Won't you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree

or appreciation of nature's beauty by Issa

A lovely thing to see:
through the paper window's hole,
the Galaxy

It looks simple but to try to come up with a Haiku, one must consider the technic of cutting (that divides Haiku into 2 parts that to a certain degree are independent of each other, but at the same time enrich the understanding of the other), the metrical pattern (5,7,5 in three units), theme (for seasoned themes, a kigo or season word, must be presented. for example cherry blossoms indicates spring, snow indicates winter, sun indicates summer)

consider this, instead of:
The strange shape
of the passion flower
and its legend

one can simplify into:

Strange shape
the passion flower
and its legend


.. for english Haiku, sometimes its hard to comply.. but the results are beautiful nonetheless

Thanks Nur. That's more detail about Haiku. Let's start cracking.

Yes, Nur, nature for me.

let me organize my mind setting first... I need to count so i know I am right... sorry... poets... bear with my old gull's mind setting.

1. Won't/ you /come/ and/ see = 5
lone/li/ness?/ Just /one /le/af = 7
from/ the /ki/ri /tree = 5


2. A /love/ly /thing/ to/ see = 6 ?
through/ the /pa/per/ win/dow's/ hole, = 7
the /Ga/la/xy = 4 ?


3. The /stran/ge/ sha/pe = 5
of /the /pa/ssion /flo/wer = 6 ?

and/ its/ le/gend = 4 ?


Now, I only count one right, but not the rest... so... my mind has not set up... please help!

Yes, Nur. More of life experiences or instinct insight when runs into my visual senses connecting to my neural system... hahaha... Like a robot liao.
I have seen your Haiku section, Nur. But, this is the problem I encountered at that time, so I quiet lor. See... Now, again. Always like that in my life one wor. Aiya...
