6 thoughts on “Blood – An Improved Haiku?

  1. Am enjoying your contemporary haiku. Traditional haiku typically contain a word or phrase that represents a season (called a kigo) and contain no human elements nor do they have any figurative language.

    flowers sprout along pathways
    warm vernal showers

    Not great but more traditional

      1. You’re welcome. I always found writing traditional haiku more difficult. So, I turned to senryu – the cousin of the haiku. Same syllable and line count but anything goes. Another blogger simply calls them 5-7-5 poems.
