A new challenge? Poets united's Wonder Wednesday, weird ... tea ghost ... Wonderful idea. And of course ... I have to try.
translucent tea cup
hides a deep secret
ghost of tea
geisha's secret life
gathering tea leaves
for her lover
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 !!!.
wow. I really like the story you wove with your words.
Very pretty! Yes, so secretive and filled with sentiment
or maybe senTEAment! lol
Very haiku-like...beautiful, secret story.
Ah yes, I am sure the geishas harbored lots of secrets. I enjoyed your poem......and my own wonderings based on your poem.
very nice you tried and what a good job you did, thanks for sharing
BEAUTIFUL. An entire love story, in six short lines. Wow! Well done!
succinct and lovely and I love the picture you used with ... very nice
So well written ... loved the plot !!!
A story hidden in a cup. I love the tale
lovely! from my research, if a geisha had a non-customer lover, she WOULD have to hide him.
It was awesome to write these haiku.
