What is a Haiku?

Morning Glory

ATHEISTS DENY HIM

Then who did this work?
Probabilities absurd
I choose Psalm’s version

The typical length of haiku found in English language journals is 10-14 syllables, versus the 5-7-5 syllables used in Japanese language.

English haiku does not always follow the strict syllable count that is found in Japanese haiku. I prefer the Japanese haiku style. I find it more challenging.

GIRLS AND MANUAL TRANSMISSIONS

A Volkswagon Bug
She said it was her dream car
Driving changed her mind
