What is Haiku?

Haiku is 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.

What to write about?

Haiku-poems can describe almost anything, but you seldom find themes which are too complicated for normal PEOPLE's recognition and understanding. Some of the most thrilling Haiku-poems describe daily situations in a way that gives the reader a brand new experience of a well-known situation.

The metrical pattern of Haiku

Haiku-poems consist of respectively 5, 7 and 5 syllables in three units. In japanese, this convention is a must, but in english, which has variation in the length of syllables, this can sometimes be difficult.

The technique of cutting

The cutting divides the Haiku into two parts, with a certain imaginative distance between the two sections, but the two sections must remain, to a degree, independent of each other. Both sections must enrich the understanding of the other.
To make this cutting in english, either the first or the second line ends normally with a colon, long dash or ellipsis.

The seasonal theme.

Must Haiku contain a kigo, a season word, which indicate in which season the Haiku is set. For example, cherry blossoms indicate spring, snow indicate winter, and mosquitoes indicate summer, but the season word isn't always that obvious. However, please note that Haiku-poems are written under different rules and in many languages. These are the difficulties, and the pleasure of Haiku.

Some examples of Haiku.

Silence--a strangled
Telephone has forgotten
That it should ring
-Michael R. Collings

2.A mountain village
under the pilled-up snow
the sound of water.
-Shiki Masaoka

धर्तीको आँसु
पुछ्नु पर्ला भनेर
लुकेछ सुर्य
-रत्न शम्शेर थापा

लाशको नदि
माझीको ढडियामा
फिस्स हाँस्दछ
-गोविन्द गिरि

परदेशी जीवन
ढल्किरहेको यौवन
एकहोरो सम्झना

बाँझा खेत-बारी
हत्या-हिंसाको रोपाइँ
कस्तो अनिकाल

Dark serene night
lingering uncertainity

हँसिलो मुहार
त्यो कालो कोठी
कुसुमे रूमाल

रफ्तारको यात्रा
ड्राइभरको जिन्दगी
होटेल्नी कान्छी

-All Suren

hope everyone will give a try!!!

its not what u want in life
its knowing how to reach it

its not the goal you set
its what u need to achieve it

its not where u want to go
its knowing how to get there

its not what u dream of doing
its having the knowledge to do it

अन्यौल भविष्य
छरपष्ट पीडाहरु
लडिरहेका बोतल

बादहरुको लडाँई
मिचिएका जनता
आमाको मूहार

Countless frogs
Joyously crocking
Soggy, moonlight fields

Celestial vista
A child’s eyes

White flowers of Sun
Are now silvery & motionless
for moon's imperialism wink.gif

Buzzing within
One-hand clap
Ah, Anahat naad!

Zazen pearls
Molten in peace
Smiley tears justlikethat

On your mark! (ABC)
Get set! (Degree)
Go! (Money) .......................... biggrin.gif jus for laughs

Smell of blood
Chopper taking off
2:40 a.m.

Crowd, humiliation
The state’s grudged rice
Creased faces of Karnali

Beating her bosoms
A son slain
Hoarse cry, fainting spells

Talking vegetarianism

Five-star conference
‘Poverty alleviation’
Applause … The end …

Scorpion, frog, serpent
= Maoist, Parties,
Scepter Government

Recycled bottle
Newly labeled
B.S. 2062

Rainbow pebbles
Under a rippling pond

Saawan ko mausam
Mehgai ko rimjhim
Varsha ko bhel.

Anjuli bhari
Aashirvaad sath rahyo
Purai umer bhari

Bhok le ranthan
Chhapro ko ghar
Khuldaina Aal-Maari

Madalu ko ghin ghin
Talma jhumi rahechha
Aaksh ko kalo badal

Sthapit purus
Ghar bhari luga-kapada
Aafu Nariman baje nangai

Dulahi aaien
Sunsan aagan
Basant aayo

Kahan haraye
Saathi jo yahan the
Aba kahan chhan?

Geet ra sangeet ko mel
Basant ko mausan
Samaya prem ko

Aanshoo mero
Be-Mausam ko varsha
Hardam barsinchhan

Aba raat paryo
Samjhana ko haawaa chalyo
Jhilmilayo ghar-aagan.

Even though we know how far apart we are, it helps to think we might be wishing on the same bright star. And the night wind start to sing a lonesome lullaby, it helps to think we're sleeping underneath the same big sky.
