Haiku, a practice of artistic discipline, the haiku's minimal nature requires poets to pare down to only the essentials- making each word, or even syllable, count.

The title appeals to my taste. Exquisite!

Welcome back!

on your first Haiku! Welcome back. ~ Geezer.

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place

Thank you Geezer- it's good to be back!

You’ve got 17 syllables to say what needs saying. Pretty good job, especially for a first attempt.


Thanks Tim!

I find it difficult to compose well executed haiku I see it as a snapshot of a moment frozen in time like a photograph in words. It’s an ancient form of writing usually set in the natural world but of course humans are part of nature too. I admire what you’ve created here and nice to go back to an earlier piece. I’ll be posting a few of my older haiku at some point though they don’t fulfil the requirements of the 5-7-5 formula call them extracts perhaps instead of haiku. Yours works perfectly regards John xxx
