A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Heeding Haiku With HA: Be a Judge!

I too think the same.

And to prove that point, I would like you to write down a succession of haiku or tanka or both (5-10) and leave them for a while. After an hour or so, go and revisit them. Revise. And then, judge and make a choice to pick the haiku or tanka which you think provides the most clear image, which explores the moment in its truest form, and has come out to be the best representation of your creative process, and share that with us. In doing so, we realize our strengths in writing and work more diligently in our creations.

What to do next?

1. Publish a post with your haiku or tanka if you have a blog. If you haven’t got a blog, you can share them in the comments down below. In case you have published a post, you can submit its link in the linking widget.

2. After you have made the post, take some of your time and visit the links of other participants. This is how we learn and improvise. Return again at the end of the week if you have made your post during the weekdays because there would be new links to visit, which would help us all to make connections and develop the feeling of community and togetherness in our adventure every week. Even if you can’t take out the time to visit all the links, then visit at least the link shared before or after you and offer your feedback and develop comradeship with that person.

You can also add the following tags to your post: HeedingHaikuWithHA and MindLoveMisery’sMenagerie.

    This was a very interesting way of writing but looking at some of the other contributions I wonder if I should have included the haiku I rejected.
    Here’s one:
    Fleeting images,
    angle’s wings, roses, gardens of light
    -early morning joy.

    I wrote several other variations on the theme but much prefer the one I put my post http://artifactsandfictions.com/2015/01/23/out-of-the-bluea-haibun/

      You did justice to the prompt. The purpose was to judge yourself, and make a choice as to which haiku speaks the most to you. We make a post and let others tell us what they feel and which haiku they liked the best. I thought of giving the opportunity to the poet herself to do that.
      Thanks for participating in the prompt this week. 🙂
