Two examples of #Haiku #micropoetry one by me and one from #chiyo that demonstrate using assonance to link links and images
I wrote this one this morning. The weather changed last night from unusually warm to more wintry after a night storm.
Now the weather's changed
With Puritan Reverence
The Crows speak of rain.
Crows are black and the English Puritans especially their ministers were noted for wearing black and dark colors and its Sunday in my timezone also I've been reading 17th century English History.
The sound of the crows calling early morning bring things together and the use of w in each line helps the linkage or three ideas sounds and images.
Now here's one from #Chiyo who lived in 18th century Japan.
Koe nakuba / sagi ushinawan / kesa no yuki
literally voices if not (having)
now time = morning of snow
Chiyo's town of Matto is near Hakusan a mountain with snow fields now used for skiing. This is a winter poem so I'm keeping with the theme for this series of poems. Koe naKuba Kesa yuKi K K K and the soft contrast of Sagi uSHinawan
