Haiku

My daughter doesn’t like my Haiku. She says it has too much description and needs to be simpler.But I like it fine.

The tree is perfect
The field is green and ragged
The sun sets slowly

***

The dog runs and runs
The brook flows around the bend
The sun shines brightly

***

The famous-most-best haiku is not 5 – 7 – 5.
It is 2 – 4 – 2.

old pond…
a frog leaps in
water’s sound

So….

round tree
a field of weeds
sun sets

***

young dog
the water flows
sun shines

***

 Ezra Pound made

                                      words

             into pictures

                                             across

                                                            the

                                                                  pages of his books.
