The Gloaming~

Spotlight rains downward--
Gloaming sky meets sun and moon
to dance before you.

Traditional Haiku

Haiku is traditionally about the combination of human life,and seasons. It is intended to be so. Though I find many on the web who post with their only concern keeping the 5-7-5 syllable rhythm. It's hard to break tradition that was taught so many years ago by someone who took the art seriously. Now I find it is difficult to enjoy it, without the season's presence.

It doesn't have to be a bold statement of seasons, but something subtle to relay a mixture of human life, and seasons...

Words weave warm branches--
Contrast between human form
nature's breath painted.

Or an emotion captivated in the way a season played into it...

Love's touch awakens,
exhilarates summers kiss:
Trembling lips meet.

But the season must be present.
