Haiku is a form of Japanese poetry. The word haiku means each poem contains seventeen syllablesfrequently in the order of five syllables then seven then five again. A predominant theme of haiku poetry is the natural world and the relationship and interaction between nature and humankind.

Haiku poets emphasize that form and function are one. This philosophy was adopted by Frank Lloyd Wright as his credo; it was the impulse behind his philosophy of design and architecture. The architecture of the Greene brothers at the turn of the century was heavily influenced by such architecture from Japan. In fact, Haiku Houses have many of the features of the Ultimate Bungalows designed by Greene and Greene.

The owners of a Haiku House understand that they have bought the simple elegance and beauty that is unavailable in any other architecture.  They appreciate that while in some instances they may have originally invested more for their Haiku House than they may have for an ordinary "sticks and bricks" house, the Haiku House is priceless in its inherent peace, tranquility and harmony.
