PAD 21

I
mischievous kitten

rolls in ashes of incense,
sandalwood purrs.

II
haiku restrains so.

revelation needs more room
or no words at all.

Tuesday has "two-fer" prompts at the Poem A Day Challenge. Today's was obviously haiku, with the second prompt being to write about haiku.

I believe you've captured the essense of haiku in the best way possible.

The constrictions put the freak in the writing muse inside me. I simply don't do them for that reason!

Well done,
Rebecca

The reason I like haiku is that it really makes me strip down my images to the barest economy of words. It makes me think.

I like your first haiku. I can almost hear and smell it.
