Haiku is a Japanese form of short poetry, with three fundamental elements: three lines (with syllable counts of 5-7-5), a word that references a season, and a cutting word that unites two different ideas in the poem. During the presentation, a brief overview of the history of haiku and its form will be given. Additionally, the entries for the Japan Month haiku contest will be read and best poets awarded.
