Tree, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
Up, slender and bare
Lonely trees always stand tall
Prayers to the sky.
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 enjoy writing.
You can find more Haiku in my new book of poetry, As Good AS Gold:
“Haikus at the end were tiny diamonds.” (Kathryn Meyer Griffith, long time author)
“Whilst this book is suitable for younger readers, I’m pretty certain that a lot of adults will enjoy this too. I certainly did! ” (Good’n Ready)
