Haiku is a three-line Japanese poem. It is usually in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Focusing on images from nature, a haiku is often direct, simple and intense. Many bloggers include haikus in their blogs: Namrata D. Prabhakar’s In the World of Thought is one such blogger.
Gently weeping rain
Cleanses sky and soul alike
Water begat life
Atlas Obscura shares a Haiku Pathway in Santa Fe, New Mexico. At the Santa Fe Community College, 36 stones are etched with a haiku from either a student or notable New Mexican poets.
“The Haiku Pathway was created by artist Christy Hengst and poet Miriam Sagan, the project’s poetry curator. The mix of poems (some using a more contemporary form that doesn’t strictly adhere to the 5/7/5 syllable form) describe the site’s surroundings, from mountains to student life, but are also a mix of whimsy, reflection, and humor.”
