    Am I alone here
    In sounding much like Yoda?
    I really think not!

    To bed I should go
    As very late it is getting,
    But haikus are fun.

    Traditional Japanese haiku consisted of three lines of 5, 7, and 5 units (morae) which generally corresponded to syllables. They also contained a special season word the kigo descriptive of the season in which the haiku was set. Some say that a haiku must also combine two different images, be written in present tense, have a focus on description and have a pause (the kireji or "cutting word") at the end of either the first or second line. All such rules are based in the Japanese language and literary tradition. Although rarely broken by Japanese haiku poets, haiku not written in Japanese are more likely to break one or more of these rules.

    Eve of midsummer
    is upon the quiet lake.
    Reeds glisten of rain.

    The storks have fled from
    hiding places at the hills.
    Autumn rains come soon.

    It's not hard, you know.
    Just google for "haiku rules"
    And then you will see.

    Sonnets are fine if you fancy a fiddle with lyrical formats.
    Serious folk employ dactylic hexameters thusly. ;p
