The Emergence of Haiku Poetry

Experienced forensic pathologist Danielo Perez lives in Austin, Texas, where he studies Eastern philosophy and energy work in his free time. Austin resident Danielo Perez has developed an appreciation for haiku poetry.

Haiku poetry has been a staple of Japanese culture for centuries, with its structural predecessors emerging in Japan’s Heian period, which began in the year 794. Recognizing and reciting Japanese and Chinese poetry was a social requirement, so shorter forms of poetry gradually came into favor. A five-line poem, consisting of a 5-7-5 triplet and a seven-syllable couplet, became the standard.

As poetry grew in popularity among the peasantry, a lighter form began to emerge, called renku or haikai. These also began with a triplet that followed the same 5-7-5 format and was required to have a seasonal word and an exclamation. Japanese poet Basho, near the end of the 17th century, turned this triplet into a poetry form unto itself, giving the world the modern haiku.
