Three Haiku Poems written for – IWH Haiku Challenge #3

the stillness of night

moon hovering in the sky

beauty of photos


lanterns hanging high

brightness of a round object

no need for a moon


bare branches of trees

no leaves they have all gone now

power of a balloon

I’m completely lost with the above image, I have no idea what it is all about, so I came up with three Haiku poems hopefully covering all aspects of the image, but would love to know what it is please.

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.


    • Thanks for commenting, by a composite do you mean, “combine (two or more images) to make a single picture”, that would make sense to me. Have a great day, I will it is my husbands 82 birthday today.


    • Thanks for the birthday greetings, yes we are both feeling well, and appreciate the fact that we are still alive after a hard 2018. Hope all is well with you, winter really does knock the elderly, take care my dear friend.
