24: Haiku Haiku is a type of Japanese poetry. Haiku was once part of ancient Japanese courtship rituals. A man would send a Haiku to the woman he loved. If she liked the poem (and the man), she would write a tanka in response. There are six elements included in a good Haiku. 1. Form – There are 17 syllables divided into three lines – five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second and five syllables in the third. 2. Imagery – It often illustrates some aspect of nature. Written in the present tense from, real experience or memory, readers have the sense that they are experiencing the moment 3. Emotion – A haiku is light and delicate. It evokes feelings of tranquility and compassion. Haiku should not explain or tell. Feelings are shown and evoked through imagery. 4. Kigo – There is a word that identifies the season. 5. Contrast – The poem contains a "cutting" or division between two contrasting parts. In English, the first or second line often ends with a colon or long dash to indicate this cutting. 6. Multiple Meanings – A really great Haiku uses words with more than one meaning and the entire poem makes sense with each meaning. This is similar to a pun, but is not intended to be funny.
