One Breath Poems are the Shortest Motion Pictures You Can Make in Words!

 

 

 

 

  • One Breath Poems are versions of Haikus!

 

  •  But unlike Haikus, one breath poems do not have to follow a 5/7/5 syllable structure.

 

  • Haikus emerged from a collaborative form of Japanese poetry known as Renga meaning linked poem.
    • The opening stanza of a Renga gave rise to the haiku.
