Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille April 20th 2016


Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille. The last two weeks were, because of the sad circumstances, about haibun. So this week it’s about haiku. I love to challenge you this week to write a haiku in which you use words with multiple meanings or words that sound similar but have a different meaning.

This is what I mean:

Based on the sad circumstances; I realized that ‘morning’ sounds the same way as ‘mourning’ and that gave me an idea to create a haiku for this week’s Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille episode. In that haiku I have tried to bring both words together and I think I succeeded:

dewdrops evaporate
memories remain

A beauty I would say (how immodest). I have tried to create another one in which I use the both “meanings” of the word.

early morning
the old graveyard … silent
fresh flowers bloom

When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.


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 liked the additional double meaning challenge – your mourning is still as fresh as the flowers – these must be hard times for you but still you manage 2 striking haikus

    Always fun to play with words and multiple meanings:
    I offer;
    mourning identification
