HAIKU is a Japanese short unrhymed poem that uses imagistic language to express the essence of a deeply felt moment in time. It resonates on a deeper level, leaving the reader enlightened and making an insightful connection between the top two lines and the last one, called the SATORI. HAIKU uses a dash to pause before the SATORI. It was created in the 17th century by Zen Monk, Matsuo Basho. Haiku alludes to a season of the year. In Japan, haiku is written in 17 syllables and three lines ( 5/7/5) but in English is 17 syllables OR LESS because English and Japanese syllables are different. Avoid capitalization (except proper names) and punctuation.
