A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Dear friends of MLMM,
Another week has gone by and so it is time again for a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … Last week it was all about haiku, so this week it’s about haibun. I think I have a nice challenge for you. I will give you a haiku by a classical haiku poet and than you have to create a haibun (maximum of 300 words, incl your own haiku) inspired on that haiku and you have to create a new haiku.
Here is the haiku:
First autumn morning
the mirror I stare into
shows my father’s face.

*) Kijo Murakami (1865-1938). Murakami Kijo, the Haiku poet, was born in Edo in 1865, and moved to Takasaki city in 1873. He was in sympathy with Masaoka Shiki and joined his group to publish the first edition of ‘Hototogisu’, the famous Haiku magazine. He published the collection of Kijo in 1917. He was a highly esteemed poet both within the prefecture and nationally. He died on September 17th, 1938 at the age of 73.
