The New York Times haiku page says that “..most of us first encountered haikus in a grade school, when we were taught that they are three-line poems with five syllables on the first line, seven on the second and five on the third”, and goes on to add that “..a proper haiku should also contain a word that indicates the season, or “kigo,” as well as a juxtaposition of verbal imagery, known as “kireji.”
I’ve tried to provide the “kireji” by photographs I’ve taken. As for the seasons ? The “kigo” changes from one moment to the next…if only we can pause and observe !
“perfectly normal” // orange sky, ball of fire // maybe: it’s Icarus
