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 !!!.
Ese's Voice has a weekly challenge to write a poem inspired on a photo and a quote. This week the theme is "Feel" and the quote is by K.M. Beckner [...] "Time can only rob us of
the things we can touch; it can’t rob us of the things we feel"[...] and the photo here after.
departing summer the sweet smell of rotting leaves I feel in the rain
Not a strong one, but in a way ... it has become extraordinary different with all other haiku I ever have written.
