shiki kukai - moving water

The theme for the January 2016 Free Format section of the monthly kukai at haikuworld was 'Moving Water'. I wanted to write about paper boats but decided on empty spaces.

The results were out and my effort scored a total of 5 votes. Not too bad, considering the amount of good haiku that was submitted. :)

shiki kukai - evening window

The theme for the November 2015 Free Format section of the monthly kukai at haikuworld was 'Evening Window'. It took me just a short while to write one.

A little background. For those of us who practice traditional Chinese beliefs, we usually light some incense to the gods, once in the early morning and evening daily.

And the entry managed 7 votes. Not too bad a haul. :)
