Haiku is an ancient Japanese poetic form. It consists of seventeen syllables split into phrases of 5-7-5 syllables. Traditionally there would be a word from nature indicating a season (although that is followed less in modern haiku). The final phrase is often a contrast with the first two.

In Japanese, haiku are traditionally printed in a single vertical line while haiku in English often appear in three lines to parallel the three phrases.

Hint: Successful puzzle solvers of this cache will not change the formatting of the haiku.


The First To Find this cache was TeamIntrigue and tfluff6.



Please consider adding a haiku to your log (or updating your log with a haiku later as you think of one). Thanks. Here is a whimsical one for inspiration:

Roses are deep red.
Violets are purple blue.
Flowers say, “Love hue.”
