I am enjoying writting haiku. Haiku is a Japanese verse form that relies on brevity and simplicity to convey its message. It is usually three lines of five, seven, and five syllables, and frequently includes natural images or themes. I prefer a haiku that is simplistic and powerful. The following haiku, is a 5-4-5. It is a must that you click on the link below for the picture in order to get the full effect of it.


What was once fruitful

Is now barren

Nature has spoken

this is's as simple as that. I am glad to see someone writing in the spirit of haiku, rather than the form...haiku work best when they are written concisely, with layers of this work of yours.
Your choice of art in the link blends well, making this a total and delightufl package.
I will be visting your pages again.

You have your first name which is exactly my second name and your surname which is precisely my first name. So we do have some affinity exculding age as you are young and I am getting on in years :-) This is a delightful haiku. I have written some but I prefer the longer poetry. Victor
