Today on Tackle It Tuesday, Chevrefuille has prompted us to attempt a traditional haiku in the manner of Basho … whom I love and read fervently. So we are meant to abide by 3 rules here: 1) 5-7-5, 2) kigo, 3) make a meaningful statement (through what I term a punchline). However, I am growing up in the American haiku tradition of Michael Dylan Welch at NaHaiWriMo … kind of a no 5-7-5 school. So here we go.

cliff rocks a plunging drop off
summer kimono ripped

Well written haiku Raven. Very good used the theme ‘back to basic’, and in Basho’s Spirit. Thank you for being part of ‘tackle it tuesday’ and sharing this haiku with us.
Thank you Chevrefeuille … I like the fact that you make us work hard. Thank you.
Oh this is AWESOME – love the “punchline”!!!
Thank you dear lady.
Oh what a vivid image, hope the protagonist of the poem is OK. The last line is a cliff hanger, makes you wonder what happened? Kimono is a good choice, gives it a Japanese ambiance.
Lordana thank you for your kind words … by the way the kigo for this is summer kimono. 😉
I loved this week’s Tackle It Tuesday. And the ripped summer kimono leaves us wondering !
This one was difficult … and I do not like the “a” in the poem but I do not know what else to do (it’s that syllable count thing).
Excellent haiku ~ very well done (A Creative Harbor) on Blogger
First line sounds rough
Second line is adventurous
Third line left with “Gosh!”
Very interesting piece. A dangerous outing.
oh excellent closing image on that torn kinono….a bit scary, you know…smiles.
I loved this Liz–every word!! You are a poet 🙂 xox
No doubt Basho is smiling …
Lovely. I can just see a graceful young lady climbing, tripping, and here the silk rip.
Very well don.
Ah … that would be “done” not don.
Probably time for some coffee!
Have a great day, Liz. Thanks for sharing you wise and wonderful work here.
P.S. ~ Thanks for your frequent mentions of NaHaiWriMo. It finally penitrated my thick brain. I will consider joining in this February, depending on what is going on in life.
