Carpe Diem has started a series on haiku writing techniques. The first one is on ‘juxtaposition’. Reading the explanation, I realise that I’ve done this often in the past without naming it.
Having a name for something makes it easier to detect and to use properly, so I’m very grateful to Chèvrefeuille for his tutorial and the name.
The following is a haiku I wrote last year.
Soft rain, cloud-barred sun,
rainbow spanning the sky. Below,
the sandcastle crumbles.
