Colleen Chesebro Poetry Challenge: #Haiga #Haiku #Poet’sChoice



An archway of trees

In this bright winter garden

Red-coated lady


Who is she?

I would like to know

Her secret



She will say

One day.


I happened upon this beautiful pathway in the Cambridge botanical gardens, ( in the winter garden section,) which inspired me to write the haiga above.

In the distance I saw this intriguing lady with a very bright red coat! It appears as if she’s reading a book but I can’t remember what she was doing…


So I wrote a haiga, an observational form of poetry with the following haiku syllabic format:  5/7/5, 3/5/3 2/3/2.
