waiting for morning
water murmurs quietly
~ strong rumble of train

    Awesome … I like the contrast in this one Sky … it’s strong and so fragile at the same time. Well done.

      Do you know how much you’ve just lifted my self-confidence? I often have a lack of it. Thank you very much for this comment 🙂

        ps . just in case A modern Japanese dictionary (Kojien, the best one-volume dictionary in Japanese), defines haijin thus (of course, this is speaking of Japanese persons only):

        a) A person who writes haiku as a pastime, or as an occupation (profession);
        b) A haikai master;
        c) A person who writes many haiku; a haiku master.
