Haiku 4

a myriad of square stones;
one of them
brings me to tears

    thanks for the explanation. I don't usually go back and see what the poet comments to my comment. But it was nice to know what you were thinking here. I'd never have though of it.

    My venture into Haikuland never reached the depth shown in your work. Nice work indeed..... Jake

    One thing that helped me get better at writing haiku was reading from the old Japanese masters like Basho and Issa (to name a couple). Love reading your comments!

    I agree with Andrea! Very deep indeed, which is hard to incorporate into only three lines! I love this, really magnificent Timothy!

    Timothy, this is so deep, it has flown over my poor befuddled head. I am thinking square peg in a round hole kind of thing. Am I on the right track?

    I suppose this haiku is a bit ambiguous so I shall explain... the square stones (in my mind) are gravestones... so you can see what leads to the tears, lol. But I did enjoy your take on it!

    Timothy, you're a very sophisticated poet for one so young. I've read all of your poems, and enjoyed them all. I'm especially fond of Haikus 3 and 4. Great imagery, and imagination, in those. keep up the fine work. Jack
