Poetry: Day 1
🌌 Dark night, yellow light 🌌
🌖 such as a moonlit evening 🌖
🎑 graced by soft vibrance 🎑
a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.
This is an English imitation of this.
A westernized haiku differs from a Japanese haiku due to use of 切れ字, or kireji ("cutting word") which the English language doesn't necessarily have. But a contemporary westernized haiku uses syllable sounds, or 音 (On), in a pattern of 5-7-5. This is known as 定型 (Teikei), or fixed form poems. There are also 自由律 (jiyuritsu), or free form poems, which have no set predisposition. A traditional haiku consists of 17 syllables (5-7-5), just how I used it, but many modern Japanese haiku don't follow the fixed form as often as before.
I #love #Japanese #Literature. It has been a long time since I've #studied the Japanese language. #俳句, or Haiku, are one of my favorite #poetry types in both the English language & Japanese language. I would love to go to #Japan this year, maybe next year, but I'll definitely be traveling quite a bit this year. I love you guys & thank you for taking time out of your evening to read my #poem ❤️
