Haiku is considered by many one of the most important forms of japanese poetry.

Haiku is, a 17-syllable poem consisting of three units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. Some recognised masters of haiku are Basho, Yosa Buson, and Kobayashi and Issa. Feel free to add a favorite poem from a master or one of your own.

Teacher walks so slow.

Embers fall from trees aflame

Sweeping, his waist twists.

An oldie:

Even in Kyoto
Hearing the cuckoo's cry
I long for Kyoto

-Basho

Pre 1850 or so it was common to find variations on the 5/7/5 meter. Most modern haiku works within the 5/7/5 structure.

respekt,
It is common in haiku circles for groups to write together. I hope you will not be offended if I use yours as a springboard.

Slumbering leopard.

Trees speaking tranquility

snowflakes descending
