  • The 300-year old Haiku Poem has its own distinct discipline:-Each complete poem has only three lines, totalling 17 syllables. - the first line must be five syllables - the second line must be seven syllables - the third line must be five syllables When these rigid conditions are met, the result can be a very satisfying word picture.
