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 !!!.
A new challenge for Haiku Heights this weeks prompt "covert". I didn't know this word and so I don't know the meaning of it in Dutch. But ... on line translators are great so I found the meaning of Covert. To write about this prompt a haiku. It's not easy, but for sure I will come with a haiku.
behind these great walls all those flowers
in the covert garden also it's autumn Ah! the full moon
A new Sensational Haiku Wednesday challenge. This week's prompt "malice" I didn't really know what to do with this one. Malice a tone of angriness, but I am not so good at writing about negative feelings such as malice, but I have given it a try.
