  2. Not here for the competition, but just was curious & thought it would be fun to give it a go myself :-)

    Strange, that death,s salt tears
    Were not enough to drown, all
    this world of sorrow.

    this is based on the Book thief by Markus Zusak & the one below had to about one of the four masters of Haiku Matsuo Basho.


    Solitary man
    With brush stone and ink, followed
    The seasons travail.

  3. So much fun!!

    Winter is coming
    Houses, families battle
    Crown to the victor.
