At dVerse Form For All, http://dversepoets.com/2011/10/06/formforall-haiku-and-senryu/, they give an excellent description of both haiku and senryu poetry, and ask us to write one.
This is a re-posting of maybe the only true haiku within the forty or so I’ve written. It was the result of a couple of days of research into the form. I’ve come to the conclusion that being born into a couple of thousand years of genetic Eastern philosophy is what’s needed for an honest haiku.
Tiny yellow rose
Expires in the summer heat
The queen bee weeps
