Life Cycle, a Sunday Haiku: Haiku-San
While you looked away
A leaf turned from green to rust.
Life elsewhere goes on.
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.
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)
“A lovely book of poems and haiku that will appeal to any animal lover.” (Shortbookandscribes)
