TogetherWith Haiku Poetry

A haiku (俳句 high-koo) is a short three-line poem that usually follows a 5-7-5 syllable structure. It was originally developed by Japanese poets, and is often inspired by nature, a moment of beauty, or a poignant experience. Haikus are meant to be read in one breath for resonance and impact. But TogetherWith haikus are a little different. Users submit their haikus to our database. Then via the generator button, it randomly creates a poem using individual lines from each submitted poem. This allows for an unique experience as each person who generates a poem is likely to be only person who sees the random poem alignment.

How To Create a Haiku

An/ old/ si/ lent/ pond… (5 syllables)
A/ frog/ jumps/ in/ to/ the/ pond, (7 syllables)
Splash!/ Si/ lence/ a/ gain. (5 syllables)
