A classic haiku captures a moment in a special way...

Open Notebook Resting on a Porch Rail

Nature reads my book!

Sometimes it's good to look back. I found this gem. I love Haiku, and this one has that lovely twist at the end, of Nature ruffling the pages of your book, reading them! A lovely example. Thank you!

Cool. Only a poet would think such things.

Well done, Rob. Good read.

Dear Rob,

As you know, I have had an occidental love affair with haiku ever since I discovered Basho on the London underground. Thank you for sharing this wonderfully evocative scene of studious nature. I shall add your work to my collection of favourite haiku.

With best wishes, as always,


This is a lovely image you are showing us. Thanks for sharing it.

This is so lovely, I like the fact that the book is handwritten, ruffled describes a breeze perfectly and I found a little humour in the last line.

Very nice. I like the symmetry of the last line.
