a bit of Haiku

      autumn evening-

there’s joy also

in loneliness

~Buson

     midfield,

attached to nothing,

the skylark singing

~Basho

     this world of dew

is yes, a world of dew

and yet…

~Issa

My favorite part about Haiku: no punctuation rules! At all!

My least favorite part about Haiku: infusing 3 consice lines with a depth of emotion, visualization, and some elusive essence of art that only a master poet can capture with words…and only a grand (Japanese) master can wrap up neatly in a Haiku.

Oh, syllables…

     haikus are easy

but sometimes they don’t make sense
