ABSTRACT
This paper discusses the elements that are common to Japanese haiku and overseas haiku, which encourage people who speak different languages and live in places with various natural climates, social environments and cultures to compose haiku. The haiku was originally the opening verse of the renga (linked poem), and it displays the characteristics of the latter. However the brevity and simple style of haiku makes them accessible to ordinary people, enabling anyone to compose them. In addition, through haiku people can share beautiful or impressive moments in nature by forming associations with a huge range of seasonal phenomena. In other words, haiku allow people to live in more harmonious coexistence with nature. This paper argues that these seasonal elements are common to haiku around the world.
