Turning Japanese

An introduction to short form poetry

by Dr Tim Gardiner

Japanese short form poetry has become increasingly popular in recent years. The pages of Twelve Rivers, the magazine of Suffolk Poetry Society, regularly feature haiku and poems inspired by one of the shortest forms of poetry.

This introductory guide to Japanese short poetry is divided into the main forms ranging from the ancient haiku to the newly established cherita.

      Thank you Marta, it’s lovely to have excellent examples of haiku poetry such as yours in the guide. Keep on doing all you do to support haiku poetry in Europe.
