Short and sweet poetry

By Debra Dobbins

As noted before, haiku poetry started in Japan and its subject is often nature.

The traditional English version of haiku requires that poem be three lines. The first should contain five syllables, the second should have seven syllables, and the final line should have five.


In each of her haikus, Meeker masterfully paints a scene in just 17 syllables.
