Sensational Haiku Wednesday on "silhouette"
Also published for: The Purple Tree House, back to basic
Hello to you all. Another Sensational Haiku Wednesday. This week's prompt is "silhouette", must be an easy one I think. Let's go do it and join the fun of writing haiku.
on the white mansion wall
under the willow
on the city's graveyard
playing with the sun
the shadows of my children
on the white wall
I have tried to write these haiku in the classical form of 5-7-5 syllables, not so easy as I thought, because I write my haiku mostly in the Kanshicho-style. In this style the syllable count is different.
Well ... until next week :)
