This is our Haiku Poetry page……
Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 morae and the middle line has 7 morae. A mora is a sound unit – essentially a syllable. The lines rarely rhyme. An essential element of a Haiku poem is the juxtaposition of two images or ideas
Haiku poems date from 9th century Japan to the present day. Haiku is more than a type of poem. It is virtually a philosophy – with a way of looking at the world and seeing something more profound. Haiku poems are impressionistic and contemplative – often expressing a sudden insight
We are indie publishers (mostly “how to” non-fiction and children’s books) with an interest in Haiku Poetry. As yet we have published no Haiku Poetry, but – (with no commercial objective) – we aim to do so in the coming year.
So – if you write Haiku Poetry – and are unpublished – we would welcome your submissions. We will – with your permission – post some selected work here in the meantime.
To see previous posts of Haiku Poems (published and unpublished) that have intrigued us, see here. A Haiku has no title.
Please see our contact page for how to get in touch….or to send us your Haiku…!!!
