Frogs are everywhere.



Note from the poet :

Many of us, though have heard the name 'Haiku' many times,don't actually understand what it is. So, questions like 'Why there is no rhythm? ' or ' How can only 3 small lines make a poem? ' are quite normal.

HAIKUS (derived from the japanese word 'hokku' meaning 'starting verse') are Japanese short poems which are traditionally composed within 17 syllables in 3 lines. These syllables are respectively divided in order of 5-7-5. Haikus are not meant to rhyme rather they are a set of simple words arranged in a particular formation so that they can act as a punch line for certain situations.

See that's the beauty of haikus, a huge aggregation of emotions, feelings always tends toland a punch somewhere in your mind as you read one. It almost resembles the feeling of being amazed when you get to see reflection of the entire meadow in the shiny surface of a tiny dew drop. Hence, reading such haikus always leaves me awestruck.
