Here are a few haiku. I rarely subscribe to the 5-7-5 syllable rule; I normally keep my haiku to 10-12 syllables with no set line requirements. A "kigo" is required, and I try for a couple of juxtaposing images which, combined, suggest a feeling or emotion.

Haiku/Senryu Series

late night wrong number -
the softness
of distant lightning
falling blossoms
a light spring rain
lulls me to sleep
farm children -
a name for all moons
in their game
overcast sky...
we tell each other stories
of his life
peach blossoms
a new voice
in the church choir
a dozen hooves
or maybe thunder
- washing dinner dishes
spring rain
into a rushing stream
- life is short
longer days
the slow beat
of a heron's wings
the first cricket -
a tentative toe
into the stream


Blossoms, Spring
