A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Chèvrefeuille here … I am your host for another nice Heeding Haiku With … episode. Last week I asked you to write a “one-bun” and I must say … it wasn’t an easy task, but I have read wonderful “one-bun”. I love to share the “one-bun” written by Candy here:
trickle down the window on a chilly winter day leaving the sharp edges blurry
trees and sky collide
Okay … back to this week’s episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week it’s time again for haiku and I think I have a nice challenge for you all …
I love to challenge you to write a classical haiku, which means you have to follow a few classical rules:
1. Your haiku must be the “impression” of a short moment, as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water;
2. Your haiku has a “kigo” (or seasonword) in it;
3. You also have to use a “kireji” (or cuttingword, like e.g. “;” or “!”);
4. You have to use the classical count 5-7-5 or 3-5-3;
5. Your first and last line have to be interchangeable;
6. Last, but not least, try to catch a deeper meaning in your haiku.
For sure not an easy task, but I think you all will succeed, because you are all wonderful poets and poetesses.
Here is my “classical” haiku:
reaching for the early light of the sun –
birds praise their Creator
