  1. Wow – very nice, very clever. A kind of new style here with the shamanistic influence. Really felt that stop. Then silence. Made the reading a completely different experience and has given me a new insight into haiku.

      • I amtrying to think of ways to write a haiku in this style – I saw it first on Asni’s page, then could not believe you caught that spirit as well. I think the shaman element is important but does not have to be explicably mentioned. Of course there are elements of Basho’s very famous frog haiku in this but that is only a good thing. The main focal point here is that the reader is no longer the appreciative audience anymore but is supposed to move along with the haiku, coming to an instant stop. Or something another similar haiku. The exact role of the reader in haiku is something I am personally very interested in.
