American Haiku Glossary poem: words thrown together with intent. haiku: not what they taught us in school. kigo: an indication of season. kiriji: a cutting word used to change direction or make an emphasis. 5-7-5: a common interpretation of a haiku’s syllable pattern, which does not take into account the difference between syllables in Japanese and English. 12/13: the syllables some poets aim for when writing a haiku. <17: the syllables most poets use as a guideline when writing a haiku. senryu: uses the same syllable pattern as a haiku, but concerns itself more with wit and dark humor than with the poet’s relationship to nature. Basho: maybe the most famous poet to write haikus. American Haiku: bastard dissident love child of the haiku and senryu, which follows few rules, drinks a bit too much, and wanders in search of the next great adventure.
