Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille January 6th 2016 “movement”

(Source: waves)

Dear friends of MLMM,

First I wish you all a wonderful and very inspirational 2016 and welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week it’s about haiku again. Last week I have read wonderful haibun themed winter or summer, but this week I love to challenge you to write haiku.
Recently I published a new haiku writing technique “undou” (Japanese for movement). The goal of this new haiku writing technique is to bring “movement” into your haiku. “Movement” however isn’t what made haiku a strong form of poetry, because haiku is the result of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. It’s not moving … it’s a still live … With “undou” I hope to make haiku more dynamic.

“Movement” in haiku can mean the everlasting movement of nature or daily life. Make your haiku more dynamic …

I will give you an example of this new “undou” haiku writing technique:

seasons come and go
she … the moon always the same
plays with the waves
