Haiku #1

    A treasure of land
    Hidden among theories
    Of mans different beliefs

      I like the poem, but I'd like to probe you on your intent. Is your poem implying that the philosophic/religious beliefs of man are inspired by their geographic location?

      Keep writing, my friend.

    I would think it's saying that irregardless of location, there is a belief of some sort or another going on big_smile great job, DomShadows.

      There are actually no set rules. Basically 17 or less syllables.

        There are a number of specific 'rules' that developed over time, but as with any art form, they are not necessarily followed. This is especially true in haiku written in English.

          I will go look it up, I seem to remember that it must be three lines with a certain amount of syllables in each. Like a sonnet there must be flexibility but the if the basic form is bent too much it becomes something else I would say.

            Sab Ohposted 7 years agoin reply to this

            The basic form is three lines following a 5-7-5 syllable pattern. Technically, there should also be a reference to nature or the seasons, and there should be a 'turn' where the grammatical structure shifts somewhere within the haiku.

              Yep - and the turn normally comes at the end of a line.  and apparently the originals always included a word that referenced the season of the poem - I like that idea

      Ignoring the fact that the first line has too many syllables, not a big issue - the second and third lines also do not have enough syllables and there is no turn at the end of a line - It might  be better as :

      Friends, Romans, Countrymen
      Lend me your ears because er
      They are wasted here!

      although this is not any great improvement big_smile
