Rules in Haiku Writing

Rules in Haiku Writing
  1. 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.
  2. The form of 5-7-5 can be used but is not essential.
  3. No title should be given to a haiku.
  4. Make sure your haiku consists of two distinctive parts, and not of one or three!
  5. Time: use verbs only in the present or past continuous tenses.
  6. Avoid end rhyme.
  7. Avoid using capital letters and punctuation marks, unless you really have to.
  8. Avoid turning your haiku into an aphorism or an epigram.
  9. Avoid direct metaphors.
  10. Use only common language.
