(plural ) is a very short 3-line poem and at most 17 syllables (5/7/5), of 17th century Japanese origin. In its purest form, haiku describes a moment of nature in two images and a “cutting” (kiru) under the sensitive eyes of the poet. One of the most famous Japanese haikuists in history is Matsuo Bashō (1644-11694). In short: The little haiku poem is a grand tribute to nature. 🌸
I'm in love with the gift I got along with The Best Cat Site of Instagram Award 2019 from Haigatos and Cidade do Haicai electronic magazines in Brazil! It is an ebook that contains 11 Haigatos (haiku about cats) from the best haiku poets in Brazil. It's a double gift because it included my mom Chris Herrmann who is also a haiku poet.
