More Information About Modern Haiku Poetry

Modern haiku poetry, as its name implies, is the Japanese form of poetry with very little or no rhyme. This style is not a new one but it is fairly new to the English language. Unlike the traditional Japanese poem haiku, modern haiku is used in more business settings, particularly in advertising. Of course, this is not to say that traditional haiku has been relegated to the advertising field.

In fact, there are several variations of haiku that do not require any kind of rhyme. But the style can be quite simple and direct when written with less rhyme. With that said, some poets prefer haiku rhyme, especially if they are working in a similar format.

There are quite a few versions of haiku. For example, there is the haiku, also known as the streamline version. This is basically a free-verse form where almost anything goes.

Storytelling is the most common aspect of a haiku, which means that there are quite a few stories to tell. Most stories in a haiku follow a theme.

There are three main types of stories within the free-verse form of haiku. They are:

The most popular part of the haiku genre is the haiku poem that uses an example from traditional Japanese literature. While this may be an obvious statement to make, it’s just as important to note that it is also the case that the more popular stories are more direct in their appeal. You don’t have to be familiar with Japanese literature to be able to read this kind of poem.

Those who have read the lines of Tomoya on their way to Yokohama will know what I’m talking about. It’s the same as it was years ago with traditional haiku poetry.

Take a look at the example of Kobe Bryant:

However, the directness of the style does differ greatly from the softer styles used by the likes of Suzuki and Rumi. You will find that this is the reason why the poems of Kobe have become the most famous.

Like all forms of Japanese poetry, there are several variations on the structure of haiku. One of the most common versions is the form known as the “Elegant” haiku.

The beauty of this form is that it is very straightforward. There is no need for elaborate syntax and the lines are naturally short.

Here is a quick review of the “Elegant” haiku and its newer version. This is a version that I have always liked, so if you’re looking for a way to try it, it’s worth a look. Other interesting points include the use of ‘U’ and the appropriate placement of ‘I’. If you want to read modern haiku make sure you read Pleasure And Pain by James Moore on Amazon today.
