Extra kudos for incorporating your avatar name (but not needed).

A 5-7-7-5, because French syllables are hard!

des fauves meurent maintenant
sous la pluie de printemps

What's fleeting brings joy
Faded blossoms become ground
One more perfect day
~~~~
The beauty of death
Beckons the spring of new life
The daffodil blooms!
~~~~~~~~~
Moon Bliss lights the night
Shapes not colors all around
Waiting for the day

My first Haiku(at least I hope so) is dedicated to the man I saw in the supermarket today.

Vigorous coughing
Spreads the virus, delightful.
My precious loo rolls.

Well... I tried.

I know this thread belongs to Stormee who started it, but I have to say applause and bravo to you, as this seems to be very much in the style of John Cooper Clarke, and I LOVE IT!!! (edits to laugh in real life and to add captures the zeitgeist).

Oh so worthy of a word I never use - zeitgeist - probably out of context. D- must do better !

Yes, indeed, thoughts of our grandparents, and the war years.

Quote

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression.

Needless to say it is the slightly less educated SLers such as myself who are most likely to somewhat bastardise it!

With there being nothing pretty about the Coronavirus, then it would always be a challenge to stick strictly to the Japanese intent.

This isn't my photo, but it is a photo very similar to the river that is about 10 yards away from my apartment. I listen to it 24/7. It is a lovely white noise that can be meditative if I let it.

Rapids roar outside
Mimics turbulence inside
Go still my seeker

Perfect.  And you incorporated your name. Extra kudos.  Simply outstanding.

ETA After ten years of reading your posts, imho, you have found yourself.   And articulated such in 17 syllables.  Again, absolutely perfect.  You touched me.
