Maiku - A Haiku Composer App Description

Few things are better for the mind than constraints and writing; Haiku offers you both. It's a fabulous form for our busy world, and offers the opportunity to stop, observe, and create something new. Maiku is a Haiku composer that enables you to write, collect, and share your poems. What is Haiku? -------------- Haiku is a simple, terse form of poetry that originated in Japan. It has a rich and deep history there. It came to the United States at the beginning of the 20th century and has been used by established poets and school children alike. It follows the basic format of three lines: five syllables in the first and third and seven in the second. Compose --------- The Maiku editor counts your syllables as you write each line. Share ------ Share your poetry either as text or as an image, in a Tweet, on Instagram, as a text, or however else you see fit. Share your writing with your friends and the world. Collect ------- Revisit and revise your poems over time. My goal with Maiku is to provide a frictionless, novel way to engage with the world around you. Have fun and happy writing! If you enjoy this app, please review it and share it with your friends.

  • Maiku the magical tool

    By trickymelon
    Maiku is a fun and easy tool for capturing first impressions of sights and sounds while traveling. I am creating a montage of selected haikus and photos from my recent trip to Scandinavia. I’m excited to share my journey in this multi-media fashion. Maiku has gently nudged me into writing poetry, with rewarding results!
  • Soothing but not mindless

    By Bora_R
    In our all too chaotic world, it’s nice to pick up my phone and spend a few minutes doing something thoughtful but not-too-difficult. I have friends who use this app to capture something from each day. Some like to share/post while others just look back on it as a kind of personal journal. I’m using it to try and just describe one particular moment—at my desk at work, something I saw on a walk, how I feel about the day’s news. It’s satisfying to see the poems accumulate.
  • Addicting Fun!

  • I’m not a poet yet....

    By Bobbyboborio
    Maiku has opened an entirely new way to express myself. Blank pages don’t work for me. I’ve found the haiku constraints and brevity along with the ease of creating with Maiku has enabled me to write about my experiences and observations as I have never before. And since I’m am 70 that means I’ve had many years of opportunities to write in other ways!
