Arms of Nature

boisterous creek rushing,
sound of wind through maple leaves
in the arms of nature

For Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt: Mirror

This month we are exploring Basho’s way of writing haiku, today’s technique is the ‘comparison’ technique explained as follows,

“…In the words of Betty Drevniok: “In haiku the SOMETHING and the SOMETHING ELSE are set down together in clearly stated images. Together they complete and fulfill each other as ONE PARTICULAR EVENT.” She rather leaves the reader to understand that the idea of comparison is showing how two different things are similar or share similar aspects…”

Im’ not sure I got it but there it is:)

  1. A wonderful haiku Pat. I have to say this is one of your best haiku I have read. And in this you have used in a very delicate way the comparison technique. I had to read and re-read this haiku to find it. So well done!
