  1. Oh! I like this VERY much. Much imaginative imagery is only 9 syllables….but it speaks a particular truth.

  3. I agree. It reads very well vertically too. Being a lover of words and economy of words, the vertical structure places emphasis on each word yet drops meaning to the next with a final complete thought (or two) at the end. 🙂

    • What a wonderful critique and analysis of thought and structure in my haiku, Yousei! Yes, I’m getting to love the 5-in-5 short poetry form. It sort of forces me to summarize into the most economic sense a world of meaning in terms of mood, setting, times, object and image, a big thought. Thanks again!
