This spring night
United under the same
This is my first nontraditional haiku. This time I did not follow the 5-7-5 form, that I followed in my first collection of haiku: “Travel Haiku.”

Do you write haiku? What inspires to write haiku?
One of my haiku was featured in The Asahi Shimbun:
Snow falling quickly
On the bamboo tree forest
The red dragonfly
Modern and ancient
Behind the sun-kissed towers
A Portuguese Fort
Above the dark sky
A great firmament of stars
And the brightest one
In the hot desert
The time does not seem to fear
The great tree of life
