Three Childless Ladies – Haiku – November 22, 2014

the childless woman,
how tender she is
to the dolls!

the three gossips

three childless ladies
exchanging kitty stories –
one autumn morning

The request is to write a “classical haiku”* based on the moving image of Ransetsu’s haiku:

*+ 5-7-5 syllables
+ a seasonword (kigo)
+ a cuttingword (kireji, in western mostly interpunction)
+ a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown in water
+ interchangable first and third line
+ a deeper meaning
