Haiku is the shortest type of poetry known in the World. After leaving the borders of Japan, the first reflections appear especially in French poetry. Haiku, which has Japanese culture and beliefs in its background, is not a creed but has a life philosophy with its own. Haiku tries to put forward that philosophy of life in the simplest way. In japanese culture and beliefs, nature takes the first place. Haiku carries the traces of a life identical to nature.
