Why Haiku?

The haiku (the 5-7-5 syllable version) is short, rigid in form, and yet surprisingly versatile and often inspiring. A session in the Writing Center can be like that for a writer. While sessions are often required, and generally timed, they can be a place of great creativity and clarity. Simple conversation can facilitate complex understanding. Magic can happen with just a few words. The haiku is a manifestation of all of these traits.
