Top 20 haiku poems—Pawners paper


HAIKU poetry is regarded as one of the most popular form of poetry (a genre of literature) which originated in Japanese until it was further developed by various writers. It was formally know as" hokku" which was a first stanza of renku. Initially, hokku cannot be read individually out of the context of renku. 

Haiku is one of the oldest form of Literature widely appreciated by writers. Its ability to dispense knowledge and communicate with few words is one of its unique features.

Contemporary haiku has become sort of controversial between writers as regard its rules such as lines, syllables and themes.

 Some debated that the rule that all haiku must have the same syllable as regard 5-7-5 steps was as a result of the originating language of haiku, which was, Japanese. Hence, writing haiku in English and applying the same syllabic rule might be confusing or rather erroneous.

While some believe nevertheless, that the rules is applicable irrespective of the language.

As regards the themes of haiku, what do you think a haiku poem should be all about? Share your thoughts here in the comment!
 


Notable writers that developed haiku are Yao Buson, Basho and Masaoka Shiki but Basho was considered the most prominent as he was exclusively recognized by the imperial majesty after his death for developing haiku.


Haiku poetry by its definition is a form of poetry with 17 syllables arranged in 5,7,5 syllables respectively in three lines.
However, below are some of the most amazing haiku poetry written by various writers. Although we decided to add 10 haiku written by Basho due to his prominence. The first ten are written by Basho.

Note: the poems might not comply with the haiku rules of 5,7,5 syllables because of their interpretation to English language.

 owner of the old thatched hut
Is also changed to another
It’s the Doll’s Festival.

Spring is passing.
The birds cry, and the fishes’ eyes are 
With tears.

The summer grasses.
All that remains
Of warriors’ dreams.

4.
The early summer rain
Fall and fall yet
Leave untouched Hikari-do Hall.

5.
Oh, tranquility!
Penetrating the very rock,
A cicada’s voice.


6.
The rains of summer join together.
How swift it is
Mogami River.

7.
The old pond
A frog leaps in.
Sound of the water.

8.
When you say something,
The lip feel cold.
The Autumn wind.

9.
While rolling the Chimaki dumpling,
The other hand hold,
Her bangs. 

10.
Sicking on journey,
My dream run about
A desolate field.

A world of dew,
And within every dewdrop
A world of struggle.

Is transferred to another candle—
Spring twilight

Erase again, and then
A poppy blooms.

Over the wintry
Forest, winds howl in rage
With no leaves to blow.

Petals on a wet, black bough.

The taste
Of rain
—Why kneel?

speech and breath. loving you is
a long river running.

sad. Redeemed and wasting clay
this chance. Be of use.

One blue egg all summer long
Now gone

So I decided to include the one I wrote.

The stars out of sight
With anger comes by, the night
Hence, the end comes forth.


We'd love your suggestions and reviews on this. Your comments are highly appreciated


To develop in writing haiku, there are some basics haiku rules to have at the back of your mind. Haiku is one of the oldest form of poetry and its origin is dated back to centuries ago. Despite that, the structures of the rules of haiku poems are still adhered to by contemporary poets.

The rules of haiku poems include:


All haiku poems must be short and in three lines
All haiku poems must have the 5-7-5 syllable
All haiku poems must have the theme on either nature or season.

Deviation from the aforementioned rules of haiku may be frowned upon by the literary public and considered as erroneous.
