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 !!!.

Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2016 #12 New Year's Eve
Another submission for the Winter Retreat "find the silence" of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.
Ah! that silence
the first day of a new year
the wind of last year
plays with bare branches
nothing has changed
See you ...
