Hi. Thank you for this lesson.
Not a poet but still I would like to share mine with you guys.
With broken win’s and sorrow
Feelin’ like Fall and there’s no tomorrow
Let the wind take your tear
Fear not and start to grow
Well I do know it’s not haiku but hope you like it.

古池や 蛙飛び込む 水の音
It implies the scenary and how quiet it is around the pond, and how the poet felt then. The imagination is the key of Haiku.
5-7-5 poems are so deep in language.

Thanks you Gill. This lesson on the Haiku is very interesting and congrat to your friend for her London Haiku.

Here’s the result of your lesson (lugubrious, he ?) :

In the hollow halls of my past
Let it ! Now I’m warm.

In the quiz,there is a question asking “From which country does the haiku form originate?”
Is this sentence grammatically correct? For I think “originate” is also a verb.
