What is the value of haiku? After all, absolutely anyone can compose them, without trying too hard. Why are they full-fledged poetry?
As for me, in comparison with the same Lermontov, Byron, Poe, etc. Haiku poets are inferior: in terms of imagery, mood transmission, fleeting landscape, etc.
First of all, not everyone can write a full-fledged haiku. This is a certain number of syllables, this is a certain sequence of images in the lines. That is, not just any three lines of haiku. Most people can't even formulate a thought in such a way as to get into the right number of syllables, and here it's not just a given one, but specifically 5-7-5)
Secondly, ordinary poems can also be composed by everyone. Remember, nosovskoe ” Znayka went for a walk on the river, jumped over the sheep.” Technically, the poems are the same) Question as a poem.
Therefore, the ideal haiku draws us a beautiful image, and then connects this image with some idea.
Quite correct poetry.
