Some nights I hear the longing
No train tracks nearby

Written for the prompt at Carpe Diem Haiku Hai Visit there to learn some fascinating information about Masaoko Shiki, a young poet who gave Haiku it’s name and brought this poetry-art into the 20th century.

  1. Welcome Splendid Empress at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, the place to be if you like to write and share haiku with the world. What a beautiful debute you have shared here with us … an awesome response on the haiku I gave by Shiki … very much in tune and I sense (as Managua Gunn) said more wonderful haiku composed by you. I hope you will visit us again.
    By the way I am your host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, my name is Kristjaan, but I write under the speudonym Chèvrefeuille (French for Honeysuckle).
    Hope to see you here again.

    1. Thank you for the warm welcome, Chevrefeuille. You have a lovely blog and I can see that you put a great deal of thought and time into it. Thank you for providing such a comfortable place to gather. I hope to visit many times!

So what do you think?
