Now that I've set out all 17 entries individually,
I'd thought I'd put them all in one easy to access place.
What is a Haiku you ask?
The traditional Japanese Haiku format follows the syllable pattern of 5 - 7 - 5. The writer might bring in a word or concept (kiga) that evokes memories of a particular season.
The last line is usually in sharp contrast (caesura) to the body of the poem.
I chose to backdrop each poem with a traditional Japanese watercolor or photograph. Some in contrast, others not.
To the Haiku purist the following might not be proper in the strict sense. Your latitude is appreciated.
Why 17? It is the total number of syllables in a Haiku, no other reason.
Why separate them? Each one should be read and engaged individually.
