Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille May 11th 2016 the circle of life

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … this week I love to challenge you to write a haibun. A haibun is a piece of prose in which you include haiku. The haiku doesn’t need to be extracted from the story, but it has to add something to bring the story in balance or making the story stronger.

This week I have a theme that you have to use for your haibun. That theme is “the circle of life” and your haibun may have a maximum of 100 words (including the haiku). To inspire you I have a nice song by Elton John from the Disney movie ‘The Lion King”

It’s a wonderful song and it brings me sweet memories, but also very sad memories, but that’s … the circle of life …

circle of life
Mother Nature’s purpose
for all her inhabitants

circle of life
blooming flowers, decaying,
will bloom again

Well … enough inspiration I would say. Have fun, be inspired and share!

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.
