Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille October 7th 2015 Acrostic Haiku

Credits photo: Rainy Day

Dear friends of MLMM,

It’s my pleasure to present a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week I love to challenge you to write an acrostic haiku. An acrostic haiku forms a three letter word with the first letters of the lines. I will give you an example:

The first characters of the three lines are making the word SUN

Sweet memories
Under the old appletree
Newly weds

Easy I think? 🙂 No it isn’t easy to create an acrostic haiku. Here is another example of a acrostic haiku, this time with ONE:

Only eyes for you
Naked she lays on the beach
Everlasting love

Another acrostic form uses a Acrostichon and a Liaison. In this one the Acrostichon is AUTUMN and the liaison is TUTU.

A rainy day
Under the umbrella
Tears of joy
United again by
Music of the Swanlake
Newly weds

In this acrostic form you need two words. The first characters of the lines of the two haiku making the word “autumn” (the acrostichon) and the bond between the two separated haiku is “tutu” (the liaison), both words used in this form are making the scene complete.

Here is another example of this special acrostic haiku:

Perfect way
Of writing haiku
Eastern thoughts
Tulip bulbs
Redder than red
Year after year

In this example the Acrostichon is POETRY and the liaiason is EAST and that makes this a nice acrostic poem in tune with whom I am, a poet from The Netherlands caught by that eastern poetry form haiku.

I hope I have inspired you with this episode of Heeding Haiku With …

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.

    Quite silly answer…

    October opal
    Layered in basil and lies
    Deflects your evil eyes
