Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille December 2nd 2015

Dear friends of MLMM,

What a joy to bring another episode of Heeding Haiku With … to you. This week it’s again time for haibun and this week I love to challenge you to write a haibun (prose and poetry) with a maximum of 75 words including the haiku. You may choose your own theme, but maybe you can look at the time of year for your haibun. I love to share a haibun here with you which I have written back in 2013.


After the rough and cold winter. Snow is finally melting. I can smell spring and in wonder I will look to the sprouting trees and bushes as if I saw it for the first time. I bow my head in front of Buddha who’s smile is seen again now,  the snow has almost gone.

finally again
I can see the smile of Buddha
the snow has gone

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.

    I’m beginning to love Haibun

      Haibun is really an awesome way of writing poetry. Basho’ s ‘narrow road into the deep north’ is one of the most famous haibun. Worth reading …

    I had a great time writing this. I am still not confident with the form but enjoy learning and growing! Thank you, Chevrefeuille!

      Time is important and patience to learn the several used forms in Japanese poetry.
