First Autumn Day, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
Early autumn leaves
Rustling rusty carpet
The child sweeps around.
Enjoy more Haiku in my new poetry and haiku book, As Good AS Gold:
“A book with an enormous heart for readers of all ages” (Singing Librarian Books)
“Kids of all ages will love As Good As Gold. It is wonderful to read out loud, for them to read to you or, with so much potential for joining in and taking turns” (Julia Thum Writes)
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.
