The Poet And The Monk - 3 Haiku suite

a moment, captured
in gentle eloquence
the poet smiles

birds sing, children play
a monk tends chores in silence
what does he not know

Ah!Ha!, says the monk
the poet bows gracefully
hiding a sly smile

Style / type: 
Structured: Eastern
Last few words: 
three independently composed Haiku. I accidently read them in this order, and said, "Ah!Ha!
Editing stage: 


I did that once with 26 haikus...the *accidental sequence* told a story.

Just wanted to say I read all your haikus and appreciate them, as they are a favourite form of writing, so much emotion/clarity/insight/pictures in so few words.


well done
