IWH Haiku Challenge #3 – Strange Scene
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.
