Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, January 13th 2016


Autumn Reflections

Dear friends of MLMM,

Time flies if you have fun, they say. To me haiku, tanka and all other Japanese poetry forms are fun and they take … for sure a lot of my time, but to me that doesn’t matter. And that brings me to our challenge this week.

I love to challenge you to write a haibun inspired on the proverb “time flies if you have fun”. And (of course) I have a few restrictions to it. Here they are:

1. start with a haiku and end with a haiku
2. try to place your haibun (and the haiku) in one of the four seasons, you may choose the season yourself
3. your haibun may have a maximum of 250 words, including the haiku.

Have fun!

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.
