Back to the Basics – Haiku – August 13, 2015

cherry blossom and moonah – cherry blossoms
in the garden it’s snowing
perfumed pink snow-flakes

The rules of classical haiku:

5-7-5 syllables
A moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water
A kigo (season word)
A deeper, spiritual meaning
And last, but not least, it must have a nature image
