Haiku Northwest - our own local group of poets; meetings 7:00 pm on the second Thursday of each month, mostly in Bellevue Regional Library, sometimes in Seattle.  Please see Haiku Northwest website for upcoming events, poems by Members, Seaback Haiku Retreat in November and more.  - they usually meet once a month on  Thursday,  at the Bellevue Regional Library.

Haiku (俳句 haikai verse?)  plural haiku, is a form of Japanese poetry, consisting of 17 moras (or on), in three phrases of 5, 7, and 5 moras respectively. Although haiku are often stated to have 17 syllables, this is inaccurate as syllables and moras are not the same. Haiku typically contain a kigo (seasonal reference), and a kireji (cutting word). In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line, while haiku in English often appear in three lines, to parallel the three phrases of Japanese haiku. Previously called hokku, haiku was given its current name by the Japanese writer Masaoka Shiki at the end of the 19th century.  More at Wikipedia….

  1. coin in the mud
    sinking deeper—
    heads and tails


    a bar called Moon—
    new, yet
    always full


    rain-tickled wood fence
    leans one way, then the other—
    dividing nothing
