from one transformation

tattered wings soar
Haiku My Heart Friday - Love this. Fabulous idea. Thank you!
A note about my haiku (in case you were wondering... ;)
I subscribe to the minimalist approach. Luckily for me, western haiku does not have to follow the 5-7-5 dictates of Japanese haiku; in fact, most does not. Haiku is a soft note carried on a gentle breeze... that can offer a powerful impact. Like being knocked over with a feather. :) As it was explained to me, a haiku should be able to be read in one breath. Yes. Feels right. The English language is too bulky, too cumbersome to aptly express the nature of haiku in 17 syllables.
Just my coupla cents. It is ingrained in us that 5-7-5 is the way, but if you like a bit of a challenge, give minimalist haiku a try.
This explains it simply (and probably more clearly than I have).
Oh, and as some of you probably recognize, the photo is another from my fun fun fun class with Lani.
Have a delightful week-end.
