Haiku

155/365
I like what Kim Manley Ort has to say about Haiku: 
"Haiku is a form of poetry that originates from Japan. It usually consists of three lines, containing five, seven, and five syllables respectively. These three lines pare an experience down to its essence. There is no interpretation; you say what happened or what you observed in a few well-chosen words. I find that these types of poems are perfect accompaniments to contemplative photographs. The words succinctly describe the experience of the moment without judgment. Charles Blackhall calls them “eyeku!” -- Source Kim Manley Ort
