A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Last night, I went for a stroll on the terrace. It was such a glorious night, appearing to have been taken from a scene of a picture book, where the moon clung to the sky, radiating its sharp beam which even colored the grey wisps of clouds and made them look ethereal. Alongside, I was comforted by the tender wind that warmed me within and left me shivering at the same time. I had not experienced such a night since very long. But here I was breathing in it, when a firecracker burst its golden flowers with a thundrous sound, becoming the jewel of my sight of that night.
Such are the nights where no photograph or picture could match the actual feeling and experience of it.
This week, I would like you to feel the night. Embrace the nightly spaces, walk along such lines where the moon becomes your comrade and the stars become your guide.
1. A haiku is a three line poem with a syllable structure of 5/7/5 (first line with five syllables, second with seven and third with five).
2. The words generally do not rhyme.
3. The use of a Japanese kigo or any season word is a significant element of haiku. Some kigo that you can use for this prompt are: fragrant breeze, fireworks, cooling off, fly or mosquito, young leaves, shade of a tree, etc.
You are not obligated to follow the rules. Be free and pen the beauties of the night. Just keep it small and brief.
