10 – 15

Note: aged should be pronounced age-ed

Lately, Ken finds himself focusing on Japanese poetry. He likes the way haiku and tanka offer an opportunity for subtlety in such few words. You can read more of his work at Rivvlogr.

I chose this one to open the way to other haiku for our theme of Portal. I liked the visual image.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

    Freya opens this month’s theme of “Portal” at Pure Haiku with my haiku, “aged oak timber.”
    This could prove to be an eye-opening series.
