Whilst it is generally accepted that a haiku is a three line 5-7-5 syllables structure there is a plethora of four line poems in this book, The introduction mumbles over this as something to do with linked poems. I have read a lot of Basho in 3 lines 5-7-5 so it is possible to translate it. The three line structure is part of the art of haiku. Can someone enlighten me. Maurice
