We have the shortest poem in the world,that is Japanese original style, "Haiku." This style needs only 17 letters. We can devide them with 5, 7, and 5letter, and we have to use a word in it which can feel season because this poem was used to miss seasons originally.

When I was a elementary school student, I made a couple of this poems at lessons. For instance, we think good slogan when we have a school festival. And in my country those slogans are supposed to 17 letters in all. This rhythm suit Japanese and is really easy to say. Not only poem, this style is often used in lyrics. Lots of pop music lyrics and most of school songs follow this rhythm.

Let me introduce one of the most famous poems of Haiku, "なつくさや つわものどもが ゆめのあと" The poet said that a lot of soldiers fought for their spirits or dreams many years ago, but now there is just summer grass and wave. He missed time is passing and how fragile our life. I think it's amazing we can express a lot of feelings in just 17 letters.

Poems has potential to contain much more informtion in few words. And most importantly it is easy to remember and to sing.

In my country Sanskrit( It has became absolete though) verses were used to represent more elaborated information.
