WHAT IS HAIKU? – Week 8

Jacqui Murray (Ocean Shores, NSW)

‘Haiku are brief but highly evocative poems imparting fresh, even
startling, images of humanity and the natural world.’

Brett Brady (Hawaii, USA)

‘haiku’s a modest composition whose content defines its form… a
breath-length that suggests a narrative… a pebble toss’t into the
reader’s memory; inviting them to ride-the-ripples beyond thought and
contemplation thru knowledge and wisdom into the surprise of
understanding’
————————————-

Margaret Mahoney ( Kingsgrove, NSW )

‘an observation mostly from nature but not always, it is a thought,
a glance, a lasting moment, a perfect picture, penned in time’
————————————-

Cynthia Rowe (Sydney, NSW)

‘Haiku is a poem of universal power, a brief observation on nature
and all its forms.’
