Our Haiku generator lets you choose a few words then it automatically counts the syllables and brings in synonyms where necessary, to help fit the poetic style.

The brief and rigid Haiku structure makes it difficult to work with the infinite possibilities people might input. However, our Haiku writer is designed with your input in mind. When our robot can't fit words to the required structure, it uses the dictionary to search for synonyms that do fit.
