Haiku Three

Rabbit leaps forward Rear feet leave marks on the snow that white fur can't hide

Dont know why I wrote about a rabbit, maybe residual affect from Easter.

the subject is now clear [rabbit] as a free verse writer coming to haiku was hard and this write is now more objective so that's a big speak in the right direction until you get a hold of the conceptual 'hang of it' try line 1 suject/line 2 action [one action only..since it's one frozen moment in time] & line 3 the surprise bit of sensory input [line 3 is the hardest to 'get']

my monoku [which means only haiku in a single line] [smudged charcoal on a full page--the kettle whistles] the subject is the drawing 'shown' by the smudged charcoal- showing rather than telling is the main key to haiku bringing the reader into the moment with the poet..my line 2 would have been on a full page [3/4/5] this is a modern haiku..you need to work awhile on the traditional ones

try for 'simple as porridge'[ Jack Kerouac, On the Road ... “A real haiku's gotta be as simple as porridge and yet make you see the real thing] if you are speaking of a rabbit say rabbit and the juxtaposed line must be a surprise, cause and affect is an easy trap to fall in but if you think is this tid-bit of info I am gifting a shift in perspective, a surprise bit of extra info? that will help you. Light & Love
