Haiku poems for me are something sophisticated and light.

Another thing I love about them is that you can write pretty much about anything you like, in a simple fashion.

How to describe our boring, simple bits of our lifes in a way that will appeal to a potential reader? Let’s ask Haiku masters once again, gaze upon these few poems while thinking about the simple things from life that you can find in them.

Basho, Matsuo 

No blossoms and no moon,
and he is drinking sake

all alone!

 Temple bells die out.
The fragrant blossoms remain.
A perfect evening!

 Murakami, Kijo

The moment two bubbles
are united, they both vanish.
A lotus blooms.

Something simple becomes something meaningful and timeless, significant, oh the power of Haiku Poems!
