I have read many haikus since i have interest in reading. Few haikus made me amaze. But many haikus were not at all worth to appreciate. The rules for haiku are, it has to be written in three lines only, not more than that. The first line shows depict a scene, the next has to depict a scene and the third line should have a content that totally makes a twist on the poem.

The third line is very important in haiku. It is where the haiku gets a turning point. The third line should take the first two lines into a different dimension. Most of the haiku poems which are appreciated not at all worth in fact. They depict a normal scene and a normal turning point. I have tried a haiku... here it is...

health is
not wealth
for hospitals...

How is it ?

I don't agree with you. There are bad haiku as there are bad ones in everything
