Quote and Haiku Poem for Inspiration

“One of the most important actions a reader takes is picturing the haiku images in his or her mind.” Jane Reichhold.

 I have always written Haiku Poetry by a vision, and it must paint a mental image in the writer/reader’s mind.

Here is my Haiku Poem, it’s a vision of the photo above.

nature at its best

wondering how this happens

branches twist with growth.

What is the Difference between Haiku/Senryu Poetry?

Here is an in-depth description of English Haiku/Senryu Poetry (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.
