This month’s poems are both Haiku
The traditional haiku is a Japanese poetic form that consists of three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third.
The snow is melting
and the village is flooded
Written by Kobayashi Issa (1763 – 1828) one of the four great Haiku poets. Issa means a cup of tea!
Here is another for this month of March and the arrival of spring.
Pale blue: the Spring comes;
We’re changing, you and I
As we smell the earth
Written by Tom Robb (2019).
