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 !!!.

A Single Leaf, an Impromptu verse
I have written an Impromptu verse ... I saw a single leaf dancing through the streets. It's was a very stormy day today so the last leaves are blown away by that strong wind. But this one single leaf touched me. And I wrote the following haiku on that event:
one single leaf
dances on the shoulder of the wind -
Isn't it a wonderful little gem? This haiku feels just good and strong. What do you think about this one?

Today I love to share a weblog on a haiku by Onitsura (1660-1738) a haiku poet which is the haiku master for this month of Carpe Diem. Today we had a wonderful haiku written by him:
tani-mizu ya ishi mo utayomu yama-zakura
the wild cherry:
stones also are singing their songs
in the valley stream
This haiku by Onitsura is meant to be as a source for inspiration. So I was inspired and wrote this haiku:
gurggling valley stream
brings joy to the heart of Mother Nature -
|Credits: Valley Stream|
Isn't it a beauty? And that page to which the caption refers .... well you have to visit that. It's really a wonderful website and a joy.
