- The Haikuette is another seemingly, American answer to the haiku and was introduced by Louise Sipfle in the Caulkins Handbook and included in Berg’s Pathways…
The Haikuette is:
- a tristich, a 3 line poem. Each line must be a separate entity, yet must contribute to the whole.
- syllabic, 17 syllables or less. There is no specified syllable count per line.
- written without verbs.
