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 !!!.
Another week has gone by. As you can notice, my dear Haijin and visitors, I use another linky tool. It wasn't possible for me to continue with the older linky tool, because of the costs of it.
So I have taken a new one.
This week's theme is Sunflowers. Those wonderful flowers looking like shining suns. Van Gogh did paint several paintings with Sunflowers and one of those paintings I have enclosed here as an inspiration.
And ... this is my haiku to inspire you ...
in dark times sunflowers will give joy and happiness
As for now ... you can share your entry 'till monday june 18th midnight 23:59 PM
Enjoy the fun ...
