Matsuo Basho, a famous haiku poet in Japan, mastered this form of poem and the poem “Four Haiku” is one of his writing. In this poem, we can easily see the change of life, from the beginning to the end, through many images of nature...

The obvious obstacles in translating Haiku into English combined with cultural differences and linguistic eccentricities such as slang or puns, make the translation of haiku even more formidable than it would otherwise be. Settling on a single English translation of any particular haiku can prove troublesome; however, the brevity of the form, combined with its visceral...

HAIKU Haiku is an unrhymed, syllabic form adapted from the Japanese: three lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables. Because it is so brief, a haiku is necessarily imagistic, concrete and pithy, juxtaposing two images in a very few words to create a single crystalline idea. The juxtaposed elements are linked in Japanese by a kireji, or “cutting word”—poets writing haiku in English or other Western languages often use a dash or an ellipsis to indicate the break or cut between the linked images.
