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

with children.

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).
