HAIKU R US

I love Haiku - (a Japanese lyric verse form having 3 unrhymed lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables). This format somehow brings out a profundity in seconds. Some are beautiful, some are silly. I am going to place one of each below (beauty, silly) and then invite you to add your Haiku in any theme you'd like. Yes, you can do it!

The years first day
thoughts and lonliness;
the autumn dusk is here.
- Matsuo Basho (1644-1694)

Harriet Meiers
dreams of kingdom and castle
Texas dust and tears
- Gary (1951 - )

Your turn!

Comments:
Indian cotton
Thread, weave, hand, dye, pattern, block
Paisley curve and kiss

Not so easy!
 
Lovely!

Madcapmum's quilting
bits of fibre find new life
to touch and online
 
gravestones and skylines
sticking up just like fingers
what will they find there?
 
Thank you 2e. That is a haunting image...
 
my life:

small bug moves across
the blade and stops -- dust bunnies
in all the corners
 
Anna

Very fine haiku
evocative with danger
soft with playfulness
