In the contemporary globalized world, Japanese haiku occupy a special place, being essentially the only transnational poetic genre that consolidates the adherents of suggestive lyrical poetry all over the world. The beginning of the XX century marked by the rise of Japonisme and revealed in the growth of interest in the Japanese poetic genres, brought to life a new phenomenon — global haiku movement. Later haiku crossed the borders of Europe staying rooted in the classic tradition, and penetrated the elite circles of Western literati. The paper traces basic stages of reception and adaptation of haiku abroad in the beginning of the last century as presented in the works by the leading Western poets.

Keywords: Japanese poetic, haiku, Western culture.
