This month on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, we’ve been looking at and trying to write like Jack Kerouac one of the great American writers from the beat generation.  Thanks Kristjaan, for this great opportunity to learn the various forms that haiku have grown into throughout the world, a wonderful tribute to the form!

This says it all in true haiku fashion … a perfect synthesis of a summer afternoon!

  1. Bastet this is a very nicely written haiku … very much in the same tone and sense as the one by Kerouac. I am looking forward to that summer-feeling … we had already a few spring days with summer temperatures … so I am all in the summer mood and your haiku makes that even stronger.
