Here are a few attempts of mine at writing some haiku. One of my teachers suggests that the humorous twist of “Funeral” is more characteristic of senryū. I’m not really sure of the difference between the two, but here they are anyway…

Creation

In timeless past,

   a voice commands

Life bursts forth

Cocoon

Dangling,

   Precarious perch

Life renewed

Funeral

Solemn occasion

   with tears and silent whispers

I have to sneeze
