a minute silent

a minute silent . . .
the cackling of a child
in the hall


the cow feeds 
on grass sprout . . .
goats bleat

    I see this was a winner....there is much to be said about someone who truly masters this form, Joseph. It takes much patience...like creating a bonsai. Congrats to you. Thanks for taking time from your life to sit and read my poetry. It means a lot. All the best, Gwendolen.

    Heya Joseph. A big congrats on your placement in Charles' contest! I enjoyed how well you employed the sense of hearing in this series of haiku. Well done.

    Yes, you certainly did use sensory perception in a cool way here, Joey. The haiku form is leaving me more and more mystefied, but I think are giving Charles exactly what is required for his contest. Well done! Love, Carolyn

    John, thanks. These haiku were written based on Charles Henderson's requirement. I used sensory perception of sound in the poem. Thanks
