4/5/17 [haiku]



morning star

stalks crescent moon

mockingbird song


This is an attempt at American haiku, which is said to be a better fit with the traditional Japanese haiku than the 5/7/5 syllable form. (It should have twelve accented syllables and I’m a little uncertain about that.) However, this does reflect a nature scene that’s very familiar to me.




One thought on “4/5/17 [haiku]

  1. A beautiful symbolic and allegorical triad.
    Obviously Christ (the Morning Star) hunts and subdues the crescent moon (Artemis/Islam)
    providing all satirical poets (mockingbirds) with material for a song.
    Well done. Write on !

    Make American Haiku GREAT again.
