A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Last week we had a haiku challenge to create haiku (or tanka) inspired on a quote by Confucius, so this week I love to challenge you to create a haibun. This week I thought let us go a little bit extreme. What does that mean? Let me explain what the challenge is this week.
This week’s haibun may have a maximum of 75 words including the haiku (or tanka). I will give you an example of an “extreme” haibun (this one was titled “Melt”):
After the rough and cold winter. Snow is finally melting. I can smell Spring and in wonder I will look to the sprouting trees and bushes as if I saw it for the first time.
I bow my head in front of Buddha who’s smile is seen again now the snow has melted.
I can see the smile of Buddha
the snow has gone

But … this is a winter / spring haibun and here on the Northern hemisphere it is summer. So I love to challenge you to create a summer haibun with a maximum of 75 words (including the haiku).
To help you start I have a few “keywords” for you: beach, sunbathing, hot summernight. Of course these “keywords” you don’t need to use, but feel free to do so.
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.
