This was an entry for haikuworld's May kukai in the Free Format category. The theme was "Umbrella".

It managed to get a total ( 1 ) point. :)

That Umbrella alone deserves 10 points!

I like heartbeats dancing on it!

dancing on umbrellas- I like this line
and I LOVE that break between that line and "our heartbeats". I literally sucked in my breath and exhaled "ahhhhhh" in romantic memory.

I love attempting haiku (and tanka) as well, though not very good at it.

Nice try!

hi GEL, welcome back! it's great to hear from you.

i am glad that you can see the line break is intentional. as if the last line is being sheltered by the top two lines. :)

magiceye, thanks!

hey, i try to write something cheerful once a while. :)

thanks, benjamin!

i think you will have no problems with the haiku or tanka. :)
