Modern Haku poems about Mona Lisa

The difference between Haiku and Haku poetry

Every haiku and Senryu poems are included in a haku poems definition.

Every haiku, Senryu and poems wih similar structures are haku poems

A haiku consists of three lines, with the first and last lines having five “moras,” and the middle line having seven (referred to as the 5–7–5 structure). Since the moras do not translate well into English, the haiku has been adapted to where syllables are used as moras.

Definition of Haku poem:

Haku is not a haiku and not the Hawaiian haku poetry writing but a haku of Aleme Gammo.

Definition of a haku Poem:

A haku is a poetry style of three lines that its lines are not in rhyme but have 7/8/7 syllable of each; Since the kelem is not translated to English due to its complexity of the Amharic and English language Pseudoscientific language comparison techniques, because there are only five vowels in English and more than five voice tones measuring letters as a vowel in Amharic, called kelem as a syllable. Sometimes some poets write a haku poem with different syllabic structures but most haku poems are written with a 7/8/7 structure that is called the down-up-down haku forms.

General rules of a haku poetry

The other rule of a haku poem is its up-down-up and down -up-down syllable play rule if you need to versify your haku poem with freedom of adding or subtracting syllables from the usual 7/8/7 format. That is to choose your syllable number of the first line and use it on the first line, then down one in number your syllable number to the second line, finally return back to the upper line syllable number to the third line.


    UP-Down-Up Haku

Mind Of Mahatma Gandhi[haku 13/12/13]

Mind of Mahatma Gandhi was filled with divine faith,
Most famous freedom fighter with the weapon- truth
Made India free, showed path of nonviolence on earth.

Mohandas Karam Chanda Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi,
Mahatma means great noble soul so pious title indeed
Marvelous word,"Mahatma" within book of Gita we find.

                                          Poem by Brundaban Panda, India

As the up-down-up rule of syllabic play the haku poetry the 1st line has 13 syllables and down by one the second line and up again to the 13 syllable.

    Down-Up-Down Haku

Freedom: Foundation Of Full Freedom [Haku 9/10/9]

Freedom: Foundation of full freedom
Full freedom means Liberty I confirm
Freedom binds reasonably says norm.
