Early morning haiku

The land is swathed in fog
all is curtained in the mist-
bliss of solitude

  1. The sea is bathed in light
    Autumn leaves shiver
    Have I lost you forever


    (“Among contemporary poems
    teikei (fixed form) haiku
    continue to use the 5-7-5 pattern
    while jiyuritsu (free form) haiku do not”)

    Claudia Del Basso left me a note on my blog. We have a very informal Monday Haiku contest and said you might consent to post one. The theme is fog, so you have one ready made or can make one up. I’m hosting, so there are no rules except 5-7-5. If nothing else, you might get a laugh from some of my humour postings. Claudia did.

    Thank you Dan for the invite, and Claudia for suggesting me! Dan, I’ve left a comment and haiku on your blog, but there is no message that it’s awaiting moderation, so I’m hoping it went through.

What do you think?
