Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille March 2nd 2016 “moonlight”



Dear friends of MLMM,

This week at  “Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille”. I love to challenge you to write a haiku inspired on a so called “kigo” or “seasonword”. In the classic way of writing haiku the haiku poet had to use a kigo to give the reader an idea in which season the haiku was written.
This week that “kigo” is …  moonlight.
In classical (and modern) Japan they say that the moon of autumn is the most beautiful, but … in my region of the world (Europe) however the Winter moon is the most beautiful too.

Here is a cascading haiku about moonlight:

reflecting sunlight
our natural satellite –
dark of its own

dark of its own
the moon catches beams of sunlight
sharing them with us

sharing them with us
her wonderful smile
autumn moonlight

Hope to see a lot of haiku on moonlight. Be inspired and share your creativity.

A little treat:



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 have no idea what an autumn moon or a winter moon looks like. But I have seen moonlight on the sea, and it’s wonderful!

    I realise that I am two or three weeks behind this, but I like the prompt and decided to make a few haiku of my own: https://risawritesanovel.wordpress.com/2016/03/27/moonlight/
