Haiku is more

thinkmakethinkthink-make-think, by Clifton Burt

I love Haikus.

Lo menos,
en realidad,
es más.

What to look for in a Haiku:
  • Use of three (or fewer) lines of 17 or fewer syllables;
  • Use of a season word (kigo);
  • Use of a cut (sometimes indicated by a punctuation mark) paralleling the Japanese use of kireji, to contrast and compare, implicitly, two events, images, or situations
