Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille August 12th 2015 Classical Japanese Garden

Dear friends and followers of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of “Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille”, This week’s “Heeding Haiku” goes back to the roots of haiku and challenges you to go back to basic. The title of this episode is referring to the classic rules of haiku, but in this episode not all those classic rules have to be used, just a few of them.

Which rules you have to use here?

  1. 5-7-5 syllables
  2. A moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water
  3. A kigo (seasonword)
  4. A deeper, spiritual meaning
  5. And last, but not least, it must have a nature image

As the title already says … it has to be something which can be seen in your garden, but in this case garden can be seen a bit broader, because you also may use an image from a park in your neighborhood or e.g. a park such as Yellowstone Park.

gurgling valley stream
can’t resist your lovely song –
shadow of a Carp

About Chèvrefeuille

I am a Dutch haiku poet. And I am the owner and host of the weblog "Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme" on Blogger (or Blogspot). I am writing haiku since the late eighties and in 2005 I became an international known haiku poet and in 2011 ten of my haiku were included in a worldwide anthology "Spasms of Light". With that anthology I became an even more known haiku poet. In October 2012 I started my daily haiku meme.
