Sometimes I write 'Ins Blauen Hinein' a haiku and today I love to share one of these Impromptu verses. Just written today when I sat on the terrace. Maybe this is what haiku means ... haiku is a moment as short as a pebble thrown in a pond ... this was such a moment.
It was almost noon and when I looked up to the sky I saw the sun and the moon standing together at the sky. This brought me the following haiku:
still together the sun and the moon -
ah! what a joy
I like this one.
Isn't it awesome ...
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 !!!.
