Haiku Happening

Vist

for the
 HAIKU FESTIVAL!

It requires a lot of discipline to write Haiku. I'm not sure I have it. Is this how you write them, anyway?


(I must apologise if you have not been given credit for these lovely images. I originally saved them for my own pleasure, but they seem to cry out for Haiku treatment.However, if you tell me your name I will duly advertise the same.) 


HAIKU HAPPENING

let long legs linger
pink pillows feel soft pressure.
insect and perfume


perfect reflection 
grey mist and geometry,
tread softly above


waiting for Springtime
here it comes over the hill.
snow ghosts underfoot.


 Japanese jazz gate.
against bland grey wall, ignored.
cats captivated.


doorway in pastel.
trace the patterns as you push.
enter and find......what?
and must I fall now
just a skeleton remains
yet I am lovely.



Here is another verse form I was unfamiliar with:

"let long legs linger
pink pillows feel soft pressure.
insect and perfume"

Nice combinations of haiku and pictures. That bridge is fascinating. When it is not enlarged it looks like a finger ring, or a round eye. I missed these since they came out sooner than expected.

WOW.. you've now conquered the Japanese Haiku too. What a glorious poemprint.
