Random Word Haiku

What is Random Word Haiku? Random word haiku borrows the verse form of haiku, but uses words chosen at random from a dictionary to fit the syllable structure. Of course, any meaning in such verse is accidental, yet it can be surprising how often it can seem to be more meaningful, whether profound, humorous or just delightfully bizarre, than chance would allow. Random word haiku elicits meaning from our own knowledge and connections between concepts.

Haiku is an honored form of poetry of Japanese origin. Its unrhymed three lines contain usually 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. Yet even within these strict constraints, haiku poets write with subtlety and depth.
