The difference between Haiku and Haku poetry

The difference of Haiku and Haku poetry

A haiku consists of three lines, with the first and last lines having five “moras,” and the middle line having seven (referred to as the 5–7–5 structure). Since the moras do not translate well into English, the haiku has been adapted to where syllables are used as moras.

Definition of Haku poem:

Haku is not a haiku and not the Hawaiian haku poetry writing but a haku of Aleme Gammo.

Definition of a haku Poem:

A haku is a poetry style of three lines that its lines are not in rhyme but have 7/8/7 syllable of each; Since the kelem is not translated to English due to its complexity of the Amharic and English language Pseudoscientific language comparison techniques, because there are only five vowels in English and more than five voice tones measuring letters as a vowel in Amharic, called kelem as a syllable. sometimes some poets write a haku poem with 8/7/8 format but the more accepted Haku poem is the 7/8/7 format.
