Why Write Haiku?

Written by RitaC on April 23rd, 2010

Why write haiku? As a literary form, the haiku is spare with 5, 7, 5 syllables in 3 lines. Concise, explicit, and beautiful words represent the condensed thought behind each poem. Crafting haikus promotes awareness, increases vocabulary, and livens imagination. As Chekhov says, ” . . .  the precious and the best words . . .” create literary art.
