From time to time, our good friend rumpydog issues a blog poetry challenge. The form this time was haiku.
Haiku is an ancient Japanese discipline – a seventeen-syllable poetic sketch, in three phrases of five, seven, and five syllables. The general idea, also, is that there’s a “kiru,” the concept of a “cut,” somewhere in there, to separate two elements that have been juxtaposed.
Can you find the kiru?

Quiet here. For now.
