Moonless night I

City lights.
Notes out of tune
On Silence’s Stave.

    WOW. I was not quite sure what stave was and sure enough, I looked it up and it's from staff of music. This is incredible.

    For me what you have written is not a haiku and just so both of us may have the pleasure of a poetic discussion I will state why I feel this way. By using the [.] you have taken away the feeling of an open ended experience for me, the in the moment feeling is deminishedby using not 1 but 2 periods and the use of the phrase [silence's stave] is too free verse and not as simple as porridge ;) I'd love to keep discussing this with you.

    Thanks for your comments. I agree with what you say about the free - verse style in the last line. You're right on that point. To be precise, categorising it as haiku, I mainy mean a haiku-like poem, (producing a 'haiku effect', if I can put it this way.). A really authentic haiku must have concrete images, and that's not always easy.

    I hope it is OK to call you Vass [that's one long name for someone with carpel tunnel to type LOL] thank you for noting my haiku & yes I too now understand much of what is labeled haiku on-line is not..and that my form though correct may still be an unsatisfying haiku.

    You give me food for thought and inspiration for new paths to take.I've published some haikus with concrete images, I think, here.
