  • Haiku in English is a development of the Japanese haiku poetic form in the English language.
    Contemporary haiku are written in many languages, but most poets outside of Japan are concentrated in the English-speaking countries.
    It is impossible to single out any current style, format, or subject matter as definitive. Some of the more common practices in English include:
    – Use of three lines of up to 17 syllables;
    – Use of a season word (kigo);
    – Use of a cut or kire (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) to implicitly compare two images.
