Haiku IV

Spring’s first whip-poor-will
Books unlooked at
Birdsong, distant, pure
Never ends

  1. This isn’t a haiku lol

      The Japanese haiku is actually impossible in English. The Japanese count morae, not syllables, and they do not lineate. IMHO it’s near enough to an English haiku or, maybe better, English “haiku”.

      That said, thanks for reading and thanks for commenting!
