There is a simple elegance, a basic and profound wisdom in describing a concept in seventeen syllables.
I love Zen, I love its simplistic integrity. I practice it in the art of haiku.
Granted, my style of haiku is not "traditional." To do that, I would have to speak fluent Japanese. I would also have to refer to one of the four seasons in the second line. I will not always have five syllables in the first and last lines, seven in the middle. I don't feel these rules are entirely necessary.
I write in the more contemporary western style of haiku, therefore having a bit more room for creativity.
