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 !!!.

Haiku Heights "Desire"
full of desire
eyes of my granddaughter
on her birthday
so sad, leaves fall
I am longing to see
cherry blossoms bloom
the freezing cold
I am yearning for summer
the shortest day
a shower of stars
the little boy smiles
what do you wish for?
falling in love
it just requires another one
my heart is pounding

lovely haiku and awesome photos ~ namaste, carol (A Creative Harbor)
Excellent variety of haiku there.
A lovely series of haiku! The first was my favourite, I see that look in my granddaughter's eyes too.
These are all wonderful. I think my favorite is the yearning for summer.
Thanks for not making my goat comment for me anymore. :-)
Enjoyed this very much.
The photos are lovely.
Thank you for sharing.

ah.. that childhood desire, for lots of love and gifts.. makes me nostalgic.
falling in love is easy. its finding that other pounding heart that matters.. and it should be pounding for u :)
You and I share a similar longing: to see signs of spring!
