  1. The picture on the right makes the biggest impression on me! Original hokku were all to do with writing “in” the season, for the season. Those leaves in the puddle rather than on the tree say so much to the observer.

      1. We see the bare tree, reflected in the puddle where its leaves are shivering; it can only be winter! The picture speaks for itself!

  2. The gun metal liquid is a striking verbal image – and I think its visual counterpart is vital to making the point of your photoku — so — very well done πŸ™‚

    And I’d caution about saying original hokku were all about staying within a particular season… The masters like Issa and Basho wrote many wonderful haiku that can be seen as a bit ambiguous, season-wise. So write what your heart wants to write πŸ™‚

    Love this. πŸ˜€
