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 friends and followers,
As you maybe know I am the host and owner of the daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we are on a "ginko" (a journey) straight through the countries which are part of the European Union.
Today we visit Italy and specifically Tuscany. Tuscany is a wonderful part of Italy with its capital Florence. Tuscany has a lot of beautiful places, but especially the sunflower fields are in my opinion the most wonderful of Tuscany.

Not as strong as I had hoped, but these two haiku give in my opinion a nice feeling of Tuscany. I hope you did like this post.
Have a wonderful Sunday.
