Leap Linkage Haiku

the bridge feels the breeze

a graceful willow sways

a dry branch snaps off

Chevrefeuille explains:

Due to his renga-writing skills. Basho was a master at making wild, wide leaps in the linking of the images in his poems. Today our haiku writing technique used by Basho is Leap Linkage, and maybe you can remember that we had that same technique in our second series of CD-HWT.

Here is the first haiku another time:

swinging bridge
first one thinks of
meeting horses

the sound of water
crystalizes the icy structure
no jumping frogs

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.
