    1. Hey there

      Haiku is a traditional Japanese form of poetry. It has three lines and usually follow the pattern of 5-7-5, as in first line has five syllables, second- seven syllables and third- five syllables. Haiku can be written to describe any 'aha..' moment :P It could be related to nature as well.

      You should try it!
