Amongst the palms and the lush green fields,
The village teacher frowns..."Do you know the table of 6 ?"
Never mind if I do not know my tables well,
But ask me about the seasons, the birds and the trees,
And I will tell you amazing things,
That I learned in this beautiful place,
Outdoors, in the lap of nature!

Winter lakes that freeze
A shikara still goes by
An attempt at creating a haiku- A short English verse of 3 lines with a 5-7-5 syllable structure. Haikus have a more complex structure in Japanese poetry from which it originates.
Sometimes less can mean more and fewer words can describe better the scene before us. That is why I love the simple haiku. You can interpret it in so many ways.
