HAIKU HEIGHTS, prompt 96 "light"



A new saturday Haiku Heights challenge. This week's prompt "light". A great prompt in this time of the year. The days become shorter and we are going towards Christmas. So a lot of items to write haiku about 'light'. I have a few haiku on "light":

the last rays of light
skylarks falling towards earth -
departing summer

in the twilight
the light of the full moon -
the first snow

cicadas singing
in the last rays of light -
the sound of water


For haiku-heights prompt 96 "light".


Sincerely,

I love to write in the classical way, but I not always succeed. I write in the so called Kanshicho-style, it's a style which has been made by Matsuo Basho (my rolemodel). In this style the sentences 5-7-5 are free and so it can be 3-8-5 or 6-10-3 for example:

a lonely flower
my companion
for one night

this is 6-5-4

But never the less I enjoyed to write these seasonal haiku.
