Season, nature, colour

I love Haiku.

Haiku is a Japanese style of poetry which traditionally takes the form of 3 lines only.

       Of these 3 lines, it is made up of five, seven, and five syllables, about 17 in total.

       Often, the last word of a sentence is juxtaposed to the preceding line, which creates a kind of separation, in writing and imagery called kireji –  it creates anticipation.

Haiku is an evocative way of expressing sentiment around season, nature and colour which is referred to as a kigo.

Haiku – a place to rest quietly within the delicate images it describes.
