Alrighty then…time for another haiku, and fascinating post by our friend Mark…he’s even included audio of the cicada’s sound/song. Do click on his link above—he features beautiful haiku as well. He’s brilliant, way over my head—but I like writing haiku/senryu, so I keep going back!
To give you just a taste, I’ve copied a small excerpt from Mark’s post:
“Cicadas are usually thought of as late summer kigo or seasonal words. Although, cicadas have been associated with other seasons such as spring or mid-summer.(6) When this happens the cicada haiku will have some sort of qualifier that shifts the season.”
Honestly, I don’t believe I managed the “qualifier that shifts the season” at all. I merely wrote a haiku…about cicada.
Sings heart-pierced sorrow’s woodwind
Plum dusk plays echoes
