Well here it goes. The Haiku Challenge 2012 to write in february every day a haiku on a given theme. This days theme (as you can read above) is Freestyle. In my opinion freestyle means 'write a haiku on every theme you can think about', but I think also freestyle means 'let loose the classical 5-7-5 structure'. And that's of course my goal. As you can read in the description of my blog I write in the so called 'Kanshicho-style', this is a style in which Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), a haiku master, wrote several years. In that style the classical syllable count isn't used. So here it goes.
the spring wind has molested
The sadness is in the scattering of the Cherry Blossom. The Japanese were very anxious before wind as the Cherry trees began to bloom.

Another one, also on cherry blossom:
cherry blossoms fall -
it feels like an eternity
I think this first day of The Haiku Challenge was a good one. See you tomorrow.
