Rules in Haiku Writing
- Haiku is a three-line nature-orientated poem expressing poet’s direct experience of something, description of background/surroundings, and an original and deep thought based on it.
- The form of 5-7-5 can be used but is not essential.
- No title should be given to a haiku.
- Make sure your haiku consists of two distinctive parts, and not of one or three!
- Time: use verbs only in the present or past continuous tenses.
- Avoid end rhyme.
- Avoid using capital letters and punctuation marks, unless you really have to.
- Avoid turning your haiku into an aphorism or an epigram.
- Avoid direct metaphors.
- Use only common language.
