This blog is about haiku. A classical haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables. Chèvrefeuille (the pseudonym of Kristjaan Panneman, a Dutch haiku poet) however writes his haiku in the Kanshicho-style. In the Kanshicho-style the classical syllable count isn't used. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), a haiku poet, wrote his haiku in Kanshicho-style for several years, but he returned to the classical way of haiku writing. !!! Anonymous comments will be seen as SPAM !!!.

Haiku Heights, "illusion"
I write illusions with my words and I will try to write a haiku with the prompt "illusion".
in the desert
the heat, the sand ... my eyes
a Fata Morgana
Not a strong one, but ... well my inspiration isn't that great on this moment.
Until next week.

The desert is a perfect place for illusions being the birth place of mirages.
Very good use of the metaphor...I agree the desert is a good illusion ~
do you live in the desert too?
five illusions senryu
I like the desert illusion -- I also used mirage in mine! Nicely done!!
Yes, I liked the metaphor, too.
