Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille April 27th 2016 – a game of chess


Dear friends at MLMM,

It’s Wednesday again and it is time for a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … Last week I challenged you to create haiku with words with double meanings so this week it’s time for haibun. As you all (maybe) know haibun is prose and poetry together, like e.g. Basho’s famous “Small Road Into The Deep North”. This week I love to challenge you to create a haibun in which you have to use a haiku written by me.
Several weeks ago in one of the Photo Challenges here at MLMM we had a gorgeous photo of an outdoor chess game and the haiku which I wrote towards that photo is the haiku you have to use this week for your haibun.

Next to the use of the haiku I have a few other rules you have to use:

1: You have to place the haibun in spring
2. The given haiku has to be used (as an inspiration or as the concluding haiku of the haibun)
3. A maximum of 250 words (including the haiku)

Here is the haiku you have to use as said above:

a game of chess
while a skylark sings it’s song –
I lost the game

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.
