HAIKU IS AN ANCIENT CHINESE VERSE FORM
CONSISTING OF 3 LINES..

with 5 syllables in the first line
7 syllables in the second line
and 5 syllables in the third.

you can use less syllables but when you use more you’re cheating (ie going over the number of syllables allowed! I was taken to task by an expert a few years back on this site for too many syllables, .in poems I’d written assuming they conformed to Haiku..If we are going to do this properly then I suppose it means correcting people (!?) god forbid..how will our egos handle it ?.. “oops this is wrong”..but let’s give it a go..if you go over.. we’ll return them gently… and ask you or suggest some changes that fit ..TITLES are also cheating..IF YOU ADD IN OTHER WORDS!!!
TRY TO USE A WORD OR LINE FROM THE FINISHED HAIKU..
.without adding in more information ..get it?
I’ve listed some Chelsea ones here for starter examples..all of these allegedly apply and are untitled.. but are collectively the present champions in profile…
