Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 26th 2016


Dear friends of MLMM,

Time flies when you have a busy life, sometimes you need to take a break from work or school, but that isn’t always possible. Such a break I can not take, but I can sit down make a step on the same spot … and take a book. To me reading a book is kind of break, a holiday. Books can bring you to exotic and adventurous places.

I recently read Matsuo Basho’s “Narrow Road Into The Deep North” that beautiful and renown haibun. As I was reading that haibun I had the feeling that I really was away, taking a break, on a holiday in the Deep North of the southern island of Japan, Honshu.

This week it is time for haibun and I love to challenge you to write a haibun inspired on a book you have read as for example “Narrow Road”, by Basho. You can choose what ever you want, but I your haibun may have a maximum of 250 words (including the haiku or tanka).

Have fun!

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.

    I had already written a haibun review on The Narrow Road to the Deep North back in September. Here it is: https://risawritesanovel.wordpress.com/2016/09/05/september-days-oku-no-hosomichi/
