Haiku is an ancient type of Japanese poetry with a strict form. It is an unrhymed three-lined verse: the first with five beats or syllables, the second with seven and the third with five. Each poem describes a single brief episode that may be taking place as you read. Traditionally each verse should contain a reference to nature or a season, expressed either directly or by implication.
