Today the prompt is love.
Chèvrefeuille say’s – Love … not actually a feeling that you will expect in haiku because love is more the terrain of tanka (or waka), but I think that haiku can be a love poem too. I even think I have said that more often here at CDHK.
Love is one of the strongest senses we have. Love for someone, love for e.g. reading and painting, but also love for nature. That love is the most important for haiku. Haiku is known as the poetry of nature and to create them you have to love nature, being in close contact with nature.
He shares a quote from one of the Tokubetsudesu episodes:
[…] “Haiku is love, a love that grabs you by the throat and takes you into an adventure to discover the beauty of our world in all her beautiful details and bring that into the tiny form of haiku that shows us a scene, a moment that lasts only one heart beat.” […]
And here to introduce love … a haiku which I wrote several years ago:
the last steps taken
to find universal love
the sound of rain

My Thought – Yes, the love of NATURE is always in my soul I Love animals.
animals need grass
dry natural rural landscape
needs a little rain
When I saw this image it made me sad “What are they eating”?
