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 !!!.

The Haiku Challenge, day 2
Day two of The Haiku Challenge has come. The theme 'Mother'. Every one can tell stories about his or her Mother, so this must be an easy one to write a haiku on.
when bad dreams come
mother makes them disappear
by singing her song
tiny mustard seed
grows in Mother Earth's womb -
shade for summer
Thanks for the challenge it brings back good memories and happy thoughts :-)
