Haiku is a traditional form of Japanese poetry consisting of just three lines. A haiku is about the present moment: Now. That is why almost all haiku are in the present tense. Each of these particular instances of time is intended to present an insight into reality, often evoking moments of transcendence, awe, or simply the joy found in the unexpected. Underlying this emphasis on the given moment of time is the Buddhist idea that the world is made anew in each moment. A haiku is vitally important because it is a moment of total and genuine awareness of the reality of the whole of life not in the past, not in the future, but in the now.
