As a form of poetry, haiku has today gained worldwide popularity. But this form widely varies outside Japan. Originally, haiku was written in accordance with certain rules, which are difficult to follow in non-Japanese writing. In Haiku Poems, author AshiAkira shares a collection of nearly five hundred haiku poems written originally in English, calling them “haiku poems” specifically to distinguish them from the originally Japanese form. His goal is to make them as close as possible to the core interest and meaning of Japanese haiku, despite the differences that arise from writing in English. These poems thus follow the five-seven-five syllable rule, albeit loosely, and focus on our connection with nature. In doing so, they serve as a reference to the long history of Japanese poetry, with a unique view on the present. White sails in blue sky, Solemn flyby of seagulls. Sunglasses and smile.
