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 !!!.

Rustling of Bamboo
Dear friends and visitors,
As you all know I am hosting a monthly haiku-meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and maybe you also know that I have created a special feature in which I re-play prompts from the rich history and archives of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. That special feature is called "Time Machine". Today we have our 6th episode of this special feature and this time it has been created by Jen of Blog It Or Lose It. Today's "Time Machine" is about "skylark", a bird that sings gorgeous and the skylark has inspired me several times ... and it did this again ...
Here is my response on this "Time Machine" re-play prompt:
rustling of bamboo
the cool summer breeze -
a skylark's song
A wonderful haiku I think ... and here is a music-video with the song of the skylark.
See you another time .... have a great weekend!

This is such a beautiful haiku moment, Chevrefeuille :)
To echo Jen....indeed it is !
That haiku was just right. So much delicate movement and sound - both that give so much to a haiku I see. In fact I learnt a lot from this haiku, how to bring a haiku alive. Thanks!
Wow, the haiku is amazing.
