#Haiku Happenings #10: Suzanne’s latest #haibun for #dversepoets!
The equinox and suddenly the light here has a whiter, sharper look to it. Autumn begins down here in the south. How can it be that it comes so suddenly? On Saturday bush fires raged. Today, Tuesday and the wind has a touch of winter to it.
This is why I write haiku. This is why I am inspired by Matsuo Basho.
Attuned to nature’s rhythms. the subtle shifts and changes and the sound of frogs leaping into ponds Basho wandered through the years
Now as my life reaches its autumn I turn to his poems. I pick up my pen.
Writing a haiku
with autumn blowing in
– a crow cawing
“– why/who inspired you to write poetry?
– what is your style?
– why do you write poetry?”
