Hello world!

Inspired by my friends excellent blog bipolar bear, I’ve decided to start a blog! My aim is to create a new haiku everyday for a year!

I will of course post haiku’s by other poets, such as haiku master Basho. I have been inspired for the most part by this book: The Haiku handbook, by William J. Higginson with Penny Harter. http://www.amazon.com/Haiku-Handbook–25th-Anniversary-Appreciate/dp/4770031130/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310729534&sr=8-1

I will of course hopefully improve as the year passes, my first attempts will be embarrassingly rudimentary, I’m sure!

So here goes with my very first haiku! Inspired by my return flight home from a recent holiday:

Return flight.

On a cold dark night

Through the window, little lights

Shining on flat lands.
