So what about you? What are you seeking when reading or writing haiku? Do you have any favourite haiku that illustrate well what haiku is for you?
For me I like the haiku of Basho. This one in particular.
He drinks morning tea
the monk is at peace with all
This one from Issa seems very relevant just now.
In a world
of grief and pain,
I like to try to write Zen-like haiku, here is one of mine.
When sleep eludes me
I light a candle and
pray for world peace...
