Fiction Friday – Haiku

A good solid Haiku using a Morae, that is the 5 7 5 pattern, and that includes a Kigo and Kireji is not as simple as it seems. 17 syllables is not much space to have contrasting ideas, a season implied and a sense of anything really. You get to express a single thought and make it convey as much as possible. Normally, I am not a big fan of poetry that doesn’t rhyme or short products. That said, working on flash-fiction has helped me get a better sense of expressing as much as possible a very short space. I decided for today’s Fiction Friday, I would present a Haiku. It touches on a subject that has been weighing heavily on my mind lately and for myself if no others, it conveys a lot of thoughts and emotions. I hope you enjoy.


Vision in frosty glass.

I see a great mountain line

It calls me away home.
