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 !!!.
Today's prompt is hope it's a nice theme especially as we see in which time we are living. Today it is Good Friday (as we call it here in the Netherlands, it's the friday before Easter) and Easter stands in my opinion for Hope, new life and Spring. Spring the season of hope. Mother Earth is coming alive again. Everywhere I look flowers are blooming, trees are blooming, trees began to grow and you can see that nice touch of young green on the bare branches, buds beginning to open, birds and all other animals begin to reproduce ... it's all new life, it's really spring. And that's a wonderful theme for haiku. So this is my contribution for todays prompt.
