What makes a haiku a haiku

A haiku:

Is made of three lines
Is Japanese tradition
Is a lot of fun

Now, if you examine the above text. It is a haiku!

the Japanese typically wrote about nature in haikus. Such as:

The sun rises high
It brings light and heat--so nice
It will never die

But you can write about anything you want:

I could not see well
Then I got glasses, all's clear
But now I'm a geek

If you write Haikus, keep them saved somewhere. In the future, you can look back at them. You will either smile or laugh because of what you wrote and the good memory of your art or you will wonder "what in the world was I writing about?"

Best of luck to you!
