On Sunday 17th April, it’s International Haiku Poetry Day, initiated by The Haiku Foundation http://www.thehaikufoundation.org/international-haiku-poetry-day/
Haiku is a Japanese poetic form, traditionally having 3 lines of five, seven and five syllables, without title, evoking images of the natural world.
Since I’ll be busy performing in Croome for Sale at Croome Court on Sunday, and tomorrow I’m having a day off, I decided to post a haiku today. It’s one of the first I ever wrote, in 1993, and was published that year by Poetry Digest. Happy Haiku Day!
