A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week it is haiku time and I love to challenge you to be immodest. Strange question? No … I think not.
I love to read your favorite haiku written by yourself. Please share your thoughts about your favorite haiku with us and … this is the challenge: Write an all new haiku inspired on your own favorite haiku.
I will give you an example:
Maybe you know that I wrote my first English haiku several years ago (2005) and that started my international fame as a haiku poet. I love to share that haiku here as an example:
a single flower
for one night
© Chèvrefeuille (2005)
This haiku is a haiku which is always on my mind, because of the strong emotions in it and through the emotions that it was the start of my international career as a haiku poet. And there is another deeper meaning in it, not only a Zen meaning (loneliness, emptiness), but also the sorrow of losing my only brother in 1995. My brother and I were always together, as we say here “four hands on one belly”, after his death I lost my companion for life and with this haiku I tried to bring that feeling into my poetry.
And this is the “new” haiku inspired on my favorite haiku:
a single tulip
covered with snow
arrival of spring
