Tackle It Tuesday, "paint the picture"


Also shared on: Haiku My Heart

For this week's Tackle It Tuesday I have given my dear haijin friends a inspirational picture. Of course I need to write my own haiku for this "paint the picture".
So here is mine and it's written in the Spirit of Basho, although he wasn't familiar with the cascading haiku-form, I have used that form.



Monastery Thessaloniki Greece
 in the garden
of the monastery
silent for God


silent for God
monks in deep meditation
between roses

the sound of a fountain
in the garden


Well ... do you like this cascading one? Please ... send me your feed-back on this one.

  11. Ik ben een beetje laat met mijn 'haiku-blog-ronde' maar beter wat later de tijd genomen dan in het weekend even 'snelsnel' langsgezapt.. nu had ik tenminste rust om je haiku een paar keer door te lezen. De laatste zinnen roepen een heel mooi beeld op - vooral omdat je daarvoor twee keer het woord 'silent' gebruikt en hier doorbreekt het water de stilte, maar ook weer niet want water vult de stilte misschien juist aan - ben ik nu vaag? Geloof het wel hè? Anyway, ik vind dit een mooie, verstilde haikureeks!
