The Daily Haiku🌿 – 2nd Anniversary Festival Theme, from a year of favourite Haiku by Sebastien Revon.

#TheDailyHaiku, #Senryu

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
Chrysanthemums bloom

-Matsuo Basho

This one from Issa seems very relevant just now.

In a world
of grief and pain,
flowers bloom
even then

-Kobayashi Issa
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...
