Haiku is Japanese poetry with 17 syllables in three lines:  five in the first and
third lines and seven in the middle line.
Haiku frequently mentions a season and something from nature. Haiku creates a leap in the mind...
an AHA experience!
Haiku fits my mind and, although I'm not Japanese, somewhere in the space of my soul, I am.
These are Haiku with a definite Western flavor.
I respect and honor all the wonderful poets from the East.
