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 !!!.

Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2017 "Life is Beautiful" - lotus flowers
As you know I am hosting a daily haiku meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and every season I start a so called "retreat", a period of 30 days in which the goal is to create haiku or tanka on a daily base with a theme. At the moment the 2017 Winter Retreat is running and the theme I have chosen is "Life is Beautiful".
So I thought to create a few poems with "Life is Beautiful" as theme, these poems are all themed "Life is Beautiful", but it's not always a poem in winter sphere.
reaching for the sun
lotus flowers blooms from the mud
old pond changes
even deeper as the nightingale starts to sing
snow falls gently
covers up the autumn fields
See you ...
