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 !!!.
Dear Haijin, another week has gone. This weeks prompt for "Tackle It Tuesday" is Shooting Stars. Maybe you have seen shooting stars, maybe not. In this region of the world we can see on a regular base the Pleiades come over. It's lovely sight and I enjoy it every time again.
Making a wish when you see a shooting star ... it's a fairy tale, but ... you never know. Think twice before you wish :-)
Have fun ... write your haiku and share them with the world. Let's go for it.
