Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

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

Heeding Haiku With HA: Spring

The iridescent flowers have blossomed and there is warmth in the air, tingling the senses and awakening the dormant energy. The temperature has already gone beyond 30 C here, and it was quite impossible to be outside yesterday. The crowds lining the streets have thinned and it seems that the mightiest form of summer would whip the land soon in my part of the world.

How are you welcoming the change in the season in the Northern Hemisphere? And for those in the south, how is it like now that the summers are fading away?

Share a wisp of the air that you are breathing through your haiku or tanka or both with us this week.

Here are some kigo to help you out in your writing: frogs, skylarks, cherry blossoms, spring haze, warm, etc.

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.

    Brown in summer sun,
    burning at the slightest spark,
    green in urban park.

      I like the green. We have our fall at the beginning of summer here. So, there is not much green to see around right now.
