Shooting Star, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
Sudden bright brushstroke
Across the night sky, see it.
The run away one.
Read more Haiku in my new book of poetry, As Good AS Gold:
“As a teaching assistant for 30 years I felt that this could be easily used in a classroom reading ” (Gilly 918 book blog)
I chose the name Haiku-San as it derives from Haiku, meaning unusual verse in Japanese (hai=unusual, ku=verse, strophe) and San, the honorific Japanese title when speaking about people. San is also the phonetic transcription of the first syllable of the English word Sunday, Sun-day hence Haiku-San, a Sunday feature on Alluring Creations involving Haiku I write.
