Movement in Haiku

leaves dance gracefully

some kiss the ground

Hamish and Chevrefeuille teach us about the apparently controversial addition of movement in haiku. It’s called “undou”. Our task was to include it in our own haiku. Here is some inspiration.

seasons come and go
she … the moon always the same
plays with the waves

dew drops shimmer
on colorful leaves
rainbows sparkle

waterfall of colors
leaves whirl through the street –
departing summer

ankle chimes
listen to the movement
of the young dancer

ballet dancers
ghostly images covered in smoke
modern swan lake

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. it’s fun to see leaves dance in the wind, especially a brisk October breeze. and then when they snap off to gently float in the breeze, back and forth, until they gently kiss the ground.
