haiku

blades of grass reach high

the sun bids the day farewell

mirror of herself

 

Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry that is based on Buddhist Zen philosopy. The form uses exactly 17 syllables in 3 lines (with 5-7-5 syllables on each line). Generally the poem is about nature or a season.
