I’m joining Trina Haase at Trinarrative in a daily haiku challenge for the month of December.

Today, I did some reading about the differences between traditional and modern haiku and attempted to write a traditional haiku.  I focused on the seventeen syllable count as well as three elements of traditional haiku: inclusion of a seasonal word; associations between images; a pause between the first and second lines.

Snow blankets the earth
Morning light casts blue shadows
Through gauzy curtains
