Thread: Haiku v Senryu

  1. #11
    I was recently researching the kiriji (or cut word) in haiku. I learned some new things. The haiku, although in 3 lines, is two parts, separated by the kiriji, which in Japanese, is a “cut word”. But the cut word is not possible in the English language. I am not sure why, but they actual cut, or kiriji, in English, is formed with punctuation - a dash or a semi-colon or a comma. The two parts of the haiku form tension or antithesis, or a paradox.
