haikaiTALKS: ONE-LINE HAIKU - a saturday gathering_under the banyan tree

host: Kala Ramesh

8th July 2023

Yeah! We continue four-line this week too!

I have a new request and a suggestion to make.

Can you share a four-line ku that you've enjoyed & tell your readers why you liked it and how you understood it. For your own poems: Only TWO four-line ku per week, per prompt, per poet.

First post: You'll search and find a four-line haiku, you like.

You'll give your reason/s why you like it. Second post: This will be your first four-line ku.

Third post: This will be your second 4-line ku.

Please give your feedback on others' commentary and poems too. _()_

Sample poem:

it looks as if

iris flowers had bloomed

on my feet -

sandals laced in blue

Matsuo Basho Tr: Nobuyuki Yuasa The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches

More of Basho's four-line ku:

a sacrificial goat


the Kali temple

at the rivulet
