A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new challenging episode of Heeding Haiku With … As you maybe know haiku has several rules for example: a kigo (or seasonword). I love to challenge you this week to create a classical haiku.
This challenge, goes back to the roots of haiku and challenges you to go back to basic.
Which rules you have to use here?
1. 5-7-5 syllables
2. A moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water
3. A kigo
4. A deeper, spiritual meaning
5. And last, but not least, it must have a nature image
Just around the corner in my hometown we have a city-park. This park is … an oasis in a busy part of my hometown. As I walk here I don’t even feel that I am in the city. In spring this park is a peaceful place and in winter, as the pond is frozen, it’s a joyful place to skate and meet other people from my neighborhood. In summer you can even swim here. And of course in autumn it’s the place to be to search for chestnuts and colorful leaves.
Here is my attempt to write a classical haiku inspired on the city-park just around the corner.
heart of the neighborhood
in every season of the year
the place to contemplate
A beauty I can say, how immodest, but it’s what I feel as I read this haiku again and again. Now it it is up to you. Have fun!
