A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression. In this thread we want to stay true to that nature or syllabic count although inspiration can come from other sources besides nature. E.g. -

Seventeen syllables or less is acceptable. But we are all students so mistakes are acceptable as well. It is my hope we can all learn from each other.
