A Single Tree – Haiku – November 11, 2015

a single tree

a single tree
alone on the mountain stands
misty sunset

This is an attempt to use the “yugen” haiku writing technique … for more information on the technique click HERE.  An example which I enjoyed very much was written by Chèvrefeuille:

from a treetop
emptiness dropped down
in a cicada shell
the soothing sound of spring rain
makes the silence stronger

  1. I lile the use of negative space in this photo. Not really “negative” of course, but visually so restrained and meditative.


  2. Your photo is stunning and completes your haiku..this Yugen, is not easy to write. I am just reading this post and trying to get it…reading other contributions like yours is helping.


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
