Written for:  Carpe Diem #911 Equilibrium/Balance
Here on Carpe Diem Haiku we previously explored the notion of ‘balance’ ( or baransu) as a haiku technique. Let’s bring that technique back for your haiku today. Let’s see how you show that sense of balance in your haiku, using techniques previously learnt.

Baransu or bringing balance into your haiku has to do with association. If you write your first line of a haiku, than you have to associate on images in that line to write your second. The same counts for that second line. To write your third line you have to associate on images in your second line.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
