Today I was very early awake. After a cup of coffee I went outside and saw a wonderful sunrise. The clouds looked like fingers and were pink colored, it looked just like they sprouted from the horizon. So I had to write a haiku about it.
pink cloud fingers sprouting
at the horizon
Isn't it a beauty?
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 !!!.
