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 !!!.

It's a while ago that I posted here on my base-weblog. I am to busy with my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem so sometimes by lack of time I don't post here. Today I was re-reading my first English haiku and I love to share a revised one.
This was my first haiku in English ever, I wrote it in 2005 and it became a wellknown haiku. It's even part of a worldwide anthology of haiku and other Japanese poetry forms.
a lonely flower
for one night
A haiku with deeper meaning, but also a haiku with sweet memeories. Today I have written a revision of this one:
a lonely flower
my companion for one night -
It makes this haiku stronger, more in balance I think. What do you think?
See you ... have a nice day!
