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 !!!.

Dear friends and followers,
I hope 2016 will bring you all good fortune, good health, much love and especially a lot of inspiration. I hope to post more often here this year if time is at my side. As you all know I have a daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and that takes a lot of my time.
Recently I launched "Souchou" an e-zine about haiku, tanka and all other Japanese poetry forms. The first "try-out" issue is NOW ONLINE and you can download it for free at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
Wish you all a great weekend,
