Guiding hands to teach
Senpai swept on Eastern winds –
Greek marble endures.
I wrote earlier in ‘Today, I bothered’, of wishing to diversify my poetic styles.
I thought I would jump in gently –
With a haiku…
A Japanese poem in a 5, 7, 5 syllable pattern, containing a Kigo – a word or phrase that connects it to a season, and a Kireji – a cutting word, or juxtaposition.
Turns out there’s more than meets the eye.
In that this haiku was a step to learn something new, I decided to celebrate two ancient cultures revered for their lasting wisdom.
Kudos – praise for accomplishment, derived from the Greek “kydos”.
Senpai – a Japanese word for a senior person, of higher experience, such as a teacher.
