Princene and I celebrated our 13th anniversary today. As one of her anniversary gifts to the bonsaiist-to-the-core man she married, she composed a haiku for me:
Bonsai clippers placed with care -
Happy man content.
She has not attempted many haiku, but I'd say she did a fine job with this one!
Then our daughter NaevEnya took a picture to go with the haiku:
|My wife writes a good haiku, and my daughter takes a good picture! (Tree is a Black Hills spruce.)|
(For any who don't know, haiku is a Japanese form of poetry that, like bonsai, has come to be widely appreciated in the West. A haiku consists of just three lines, and traditionally contains 17 syllables, in a 5-7-5 arrangement, tho minor variation in the number of syllables is allowed. It need not rhyme, and usually evokes a mood and/or has something in nature as its subject.)
Thank you, sweetie! ☺
