Best Haiku Poems Ever
Here are some of the most famous haiku poems that were written by some of the best haiku masters of the world like Kobayashi Issa, Matsuo Basho, Shiki and Buson. Generally and historically, a haiku poem is a japanese poetry form who consists of three lines, with the first and last line having 5 mora, and the middle line having 7. In actual english literature, it is also made of 5-7-5 syllabes. The difference between a mora and a syllabe is not very important since the moras do not translate well into English, they have been adapted and syllables are used as moras. Moras are sound units much like syllables but are not identical to them. Below are some examples of the best haiku poems and forms translated from japanese to english.
