When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel

You should totally check out who they are. With the talent you dislay in your haikus, I thought you knew who they were. If you start reading their work and emulate them, wow you'll be like a haiku ninja, not that you're not one already. Great job.

Oh, thank YOU so much Mckay! Really though I only just started writing Haiku's two months ago and I have no idea who Basho or Buson are ,, *please don't kill me*  but I'm so happy that you like them so much as to compliment me like this. Really, thank  you!

You're great at writing haikus. Maybe you'll be the next Basho or Buson. I like this one too.
