  9. Loved the thought expressed... but was this Haiku really following the 5-7-5 syllabic scheme?

    1. Arvind, english haiku do not necessarily adhere to the strict syllable count found in Japanese haiku but a haiku is still less than seventeen syllables. The Japanese, when they wrote it, wrote it in the form of 5-7-5 Japanese syllables, called "on" or "morae". When the same is written in English, it isn't always in the same 5-7-5 format, sometimes it's lesser too. . One of my favorite Haiku "Lily...out of water....out of itself" by Nick Virgilio
