Haiku (俳句, haikai verse) listen (help·info), plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras (or on), in three metrical phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively. Haiku typically contain a kigo, or seasonal reference, and a kireji or verbal caesura. In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English usually appear in three lines, to parallel the three metrical phrases of Japanese haiku. Previously called hokku, haiku was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century.
Haiku is perhaps one of the most disciplined forms of poetry. The verses encapsulate an imagery that is structured within a specific number of syllables. It is beauty defined in brevity, a moving emotion captured inside the concept of conciseness.
Eternal Wanderer is therefore rightly intimidated. Will Eternal Wanderer even dare to attempt writing such a powerful yet distilled art of words? He is scared at the daunting prospect, but nonetheless, he tries his best with the task to hand.
Hence, he shares with you the fruit of his first ever endeavor to write a haiku. It eloquently bespeaks about the emotion of embarrassment from sharing too much information.
Lust rains summer on my face.
I lick your sweetness - yum!
P.S. Eternal Wanderer realizes now why he can never be a poet - ever! AHAHAHAHA have a good week ahead, y'all!
