The Curious Case of Super popularity of “ HAIKU”

Everyone have feelings and its magical when they  express it in any form and share with the world to feel the vibes . It can be pictures or words or videos or GIF or combination of few or all of them .

HAIKU is  such a beautiful form of reciting poem in form of giving words to images.

It’s technical definition goes as “A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. “

Or “”Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry which consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllable & the best part is that the lines rarely rhyme.”



Recently, I have seen a surge across blogs coming up with “HAIKU “as many as 4-5 per day . In the world , where to keep blog “ ALIVE “ and  fight for “ ALEXA “ & “MOZ RANK “ people have found a shortcut in Haiku . So  4 lines, not even complete and one Random picture (like click any bird flying from your window) makes a  quick fix post to be published.

So people who were busy posting “PRODUCT reviews “ of Lipstick or hair gel or  “Sabji masala ” have learnt the art of “ HAIKU “ overnight and their blog readers are all expert Critics of this art which gets reflected in the form of comments   like “ Amazing “ “ Beautiful “ ,” Magical “ “ Lively “ and 40-50 more such adjectives . They are in real fits in definition of  “Friends with benefits “ , which goes like “you stretch my back and I sketch yours “ … So in Blogging terms it goes like … “ You comment and like on my post and I Reciprocate “ .

I know it will sound rude to some and cruel to many, but that’s the reality. Without working on basics and getting the format right   , everything is named under “HAIKU “because no one is going to object to it and real critics rarely go and read such post.

I know this post is going to change nothing, still felt to share with hope .  Hope, that fellow bloggers genuinely go back to basic where “Blogging “ means ” Expressing “ .  Expressing how you feel , think and wish things should be .. Rather than mad chase of pushing on number of post / day and doing anything for sake of it.

In short  “Stop Faking & Be Original.”

And yes, even though most of them are not Haiku “Technically “, few of them are beautifully written POEM’s. Like a well defined caption to a random image.

Waiting for fellow bloggers and readers to share opinions on the same
