Haiku Poetry - YouTube 

haiku, unrhymed poetic form consisting of 17 syllables arranged in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively. The haiku first emerged in Japanese literature during the 17th century, as a terse reaction to elaborate poetic traditions, though it did not become known by the name haiku until the 19th century.




On a withered branch
A crow has alighted;
Nightfall in autumn.


somewhere in empty space

a lady seems anxious , yet knows

pitfalls could harm others


on a tired mind set

none can hear anything

only sleep will resume
