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 !!!.

Spring Retreat 2017 "fragile beauty" 1 diamonds
Maybe you have read it somewhere, but else I love to tell you. Every year I organize a seasonly "retreat" and on January 15th I started with the Spring Retreat "fragile beauty". The "retreat" means 30 days of writing (at least) one haiku or tanka themed "fragile beauty".
So here is my first "Spring Retreat" submission:
fresh fallen snow
fragily beauty covers the garden
blanket of diamonds
See you ...
