Golden eggs and harps

(Triple Tetractys)

It
happened
so quickly
I was amazed.
The fog lifted, to reveal a painting
like an artist's imagined fairy tale.
A sea of cloud
supporting
a new
world.
Peaks,
valleys,
and forests,
in the heavens.
I found myself looking for the beanstalk!

    A beautiful image, and love that surprise ending. :) As for your comment on my haiku, the modern haiku can have any number of syllables per line, as long as the total count does not exceed 17, as the haiku in its original tongue, needs a count of more syllables to effectivly portray the thought, where as in the english language, we need less syllables for the desired effect, so say the haiku Gods. :) Love, Kristin
