Haiku in English(5)

The jumping dolphines
their wet backbones reflecting

Frano Vlatkovic, Croatia

■It's a dynamic haiku. I can imagine the scene clearly. Verbs always play the important role in haikus because they express lives in the nature, including human beings. Lives never stop but are always moving. The words jumping and reflecting are used effectively in this haiku.
