Alone – a Haiku

What is the format for Haiku poem?

A Haiku poem follows a 5-7-5 syllable format. Draft and redraft every poem until the meaning is perfectly expressed.You should remember however, that, you don’t have to adhere to the 5–7–5 syllable pattern, and that a true literary haiku includes a kigo, a two-part juxtapositional structure, and primarily objective sensory imagery.

Do haiku have titles?

They can, just like any poem. Of course they can also be ‘untitled’. Traditionally they’re untitled, as each haiku is considered complete in itself.
