An empty beach in the dark
The memory of water

    I love this, it is a real haiku.
    I was wondering if the act of remembering is mentioned in the original haikus often?
    Great blog by the way

      Thank you! Usually, tradition haiku, like Basho, Buson and Issa, focuses on time of the year, change of season, that would be traditional. But while haiku writers respected tradition, they also wanted to break it!

  2. I completelly agree that breaking is important
