thatched twig bundle
winter’s shivering blanket
dawning spring’s song
Haiku: The traditional Japanese haiku consists of three lines. The first line contains five syllables, the second line contains seven, and the last line five. The traditional subject-matter is a description of a location, natural phenomona, wildlife, or a common everyday occurrence. The haiku seeks to capture the qualities of experiencing the natural world uncluttered by “ideas.”
I have learned that an excellent haiku tells a story.
“The soul has illusions as the bird has wings; it is supported by them.”
