pink cherry blossoms
cast shimmering reflections
on seas of Japan
*This was my first haiku written when I was a childand committed to memory.
Now that I know the rules of good haiku writing, I know this does not fit the
criteria of haiku, but thought I'd post it anyway. Originally for PD's contest,
I've decided to look for a more recent haiku of mine that is terrible, to be used
for "worst poem contest."
