Inspired by the theme at
deserted streetscivil wars all over the world -
no more joy at all
no more joy at alllost and alone in the desert
just the moon and I
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 !!!.
" just the moon and I" So wonderfully descriptive. I've had just that experience in the Arizona desert
I would love to be alone with the moon in the desert. Sounds lovely.
Lovely capture of the desert's loneliness ~
Desolate, and perfect for the prompt.
That sounds a good place to be:)
Beautiful feeling of being lost in earth space!
The loneliness in this echoes. Strong haiku.
"just the moon and I" would be so heavenly....But, gives a different meaning here! Good one Kristjaan :)
Read in its context being alone with the moon is a terrible thought. In another context it could be lovely.
This felt very biblical!
if the strife continues, what would remain but the desert! very thoughtful!!
Wonderful haiku,my friend
I can only imagine the beauty of a full moon and sky of stars in the desert!!
Love the way you end the series, terrible thing that's happening all around... let's pray peace comes quickly
I have not submitted anything this week, just going round, admiring - ♥
