They tease and giggle

Our host Kristjaan at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai enjoys to challenge us as we write haiku – “It’s my pleasure to present a new episode of our Haiku Writing Techniques. This time it’s all about “comparison”. Here is what I found about “comparison” in Jane Reichhold’s “Bare Bones, school of haiku”:

In the words of Betty Drevniok: “In haiku the SOMETHING and the SOMETHING ELSE are set down together in clearly stated images. Together they complete and fulfill each other as ONE PARTICULAR EVENT.” She rather leaves the reader to understand that the idea of comparison is showing how two different things are similar or share similar aspects.”
