Haiku: Open Your Eyes

in haiku •  5 months ago


Have you taken a good look what's around you? Have you seen the despair in people's eyes? The suffering and hate? If so, what did you do?

Open your eyes wide

See the suffering and hate—

Move and take action


What is the difference between traditional haiku and freestyle haiku

Traditional haiku must follow a pattern, 5-7-5 (five syllables in the first line, seven in the second line and five in the last line with a total of 17 syllables). In freestyle, there is no set amount of syllables. The idea there is to catch the spirit rather than the form of the original Japanese art form.

I am familiar with traditional haiku, but this is the first I've heard of freestyle. Freestyle opens doors in my creativity. Excellent work.
