"If you can't explain something simply, you don't understand it well enough."


--- Albert Einstein



How true, isn't it? Ever related it to haikai poems? Do you know the rules really well to teach even one person? Can you teach them what is a haiku/ senryu/ tanka/ haibun in one line? Can you be less complex and more simple in your language and style?


Here's a golden chance for you to teach our readers what defines a haiku/ senryu, etc.

Substantiate with an example poem and tell why does it interest you so much? How do you relate to it?

Can you teach the beginners how to read a haiku?

Can you teach them what works and does not work?

The list is long....


Go ahead, and share your insights! Let it be a fruitful exchange between you and the readers!



Note: Please DO NOT SHARE any links -- explain what comes naturally to you.

Let's take 'kire' - the cut we use in haiku. Can anyone explain it what you understand by this?

Replying to

Kire means ‘the cut‘ in haiku. It helps to show the connection between two images in a haiku. The images are neither too close nor too apart. A subtle balance is needed to make the haiku understandable.

for instance:


wind-driven rain –

the mimosa blossoms stick

to the windshield wipers
