Haiku is to poetry as espresso is to coffee.

how long will he remember
this rainbow

A slightly different version was posted at the International Haiku Kukai.

L2 and L3 are stunning. I think that L1 needs revision. May I suggest:

double rainbow-
how long will my grandchild
remember it

Your contribution to the International Kukai is always significant.

Good suggestion, Rita. Thanks. It loses the sense of a shared moment, which is really what the ku is about (Will he remember moments shared with me? Will he remember me?), but I'm not sure my version gets that, either.
