Haiku is one of the most important form of traditional Japanese poetry. Haiku is, today, a 17-syllable verse form consisting of three metrical units of 5, 7, and 5 syllables.
The moment two bubbles are united,
they both vanish.
A lotus blooms.
a strangled Telephone has forgotten
That it should ring
World like a dewdrop
though it's only a dewdrop
even so, even so.
I sit at my desk each night with no place to go,
opening the wrinkled maps
of Milwaukee and Buffalo .
