Carpe Diem #934 Onions
a morning of snow
only the onions in the garden
blaze the trail

In the words of Kristjaan (Chev.) ,
the above poem starts basically with a wide-angle lens on the world in the 1st line, then switches to a normal lens for the 2nd line and zooms in for a close up in the end.
And this us what we have to attempt for How to Write Haiku
” narrowing focus ” , for Carpe Diem # 934 Onions !
It is not an easy work to “narrow the focus ” and after pondering for many hours , here is my attempt
following the path of the master , Basho .
