I like what you have done here, Charles. Droughts do hamper the reproduction of mosquitoes, but they also are detrimental to us humans. ~ Best regards // paul

Indeed, the West Nile is no joke. Your comments brightened my morning, Lasaad. Thank you for that and for the return visit my friend. Have a blessed weekend...Charlie

i've been sitting here trying to write different Haiku and even looked Basho up, counted syllables and am doing my head shaking trying to get ahold of an idea. Yours is very good!!

This form that the sponsor wants has been driving everyone nuts (lol) Myself included. I can only hope this is what he is looking for. Thank you so much, Karen. For both your visit and lovely comments. Hugs Charlie

There is one thing to do with mosquitoes. Kill them.

Wow, Charlie, now I know why they want us to dump or empty those watery containers so mosquitoes would not hatch and prevent West Nile cases. I think this one is a Basho style... just my interpretation of Basho's haiku subject matter; but I'm a newbie in poetry.... lol ... so don't take my word ... only my common sense...

You captured Basho's style perfectly Charlie. I also spent time studying Basho's style. I really like your haiku -Basho style. Blessings and best wishes for the contest my friend. Love and hugs.

Boy, Sam. You sure know how to make a fella feel good :) Thanks so much for the inspiring words. Basho must have a various style OR I just had a hard time putting my finger on how his mind worked. If only he were here to guide me... Blessings and love...Charlie

not sure what the judge wants from us but to me, THIS should do the trick. I really like this.

I studied Basho for a few hours and originally wrote one that I thought would fit. I resorted to the sponsors blog to get a better idea. I hope this fits the bill (lol). thanks for stopping by. Hugs
