This is a haiku poem, written by me.

I attempted to use all the traditional qualities featured in haiku. But I'm pretty sure I got one or two wrong.
I'll explain them after the poem for you! Smile

    He stands all alone
    Under the bright white moonlight
    He, the great gray wolf

Haiku is a type of Japanese poetry consisting of 17 on (not syllables!) but I'm lazy so I just used syllables instead! Haiku in English is usually depicted with 17 syllables spread over 3 lines. 5, 7, 5.

I'm going to copy and paste from Wikipedia now...

    The essence of haiku is "cutting" (kiru). This is often represented by the juxtaposition of two images or ideas and a kireji ("cutting word") between them, a kind of verbal punctuation mark which signals the moment of separation and colours the manner in which the juxtaposed elements are related.

I was pretty sure that was just equaled to a caesura - so I added a comma. But it could be the word 'moonlight'. Because it says the wolf is alone, but he is also with the moon...
I dunno! It's just a thought!

    A kigo (seasonal reference) are usually drawn from the natural world.

The moonlight is a reference to Fall.

Tairiku Ookami roughly translated to English means Gray Wolf.

Airi-chan is cuter than you =^_^=
... Even dressed as a strawberry +_+
