Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, April 5th 2017 Magnolia (Kobushi)

Dear friends of MLMM,

Finally it is spring here at The Netherlands. As I look around me I see all kinds of blossoms bloom for example cherry blossoms, but I also see Magnolia bloom in almost every garden in my neighborhood. This gives me really a spring feeling and I love it.

This week’s theme for Heeding Haiku With is Magnolia (Kobushi), it is a kigo (seasonword) for spring. Maybe you know that haiku uses kigo to point to the season in which the haiku was written.


Here I have an example written by myself last year (2016):

blossoming Magnolia
one of its branches scattered –
on the credenza

And another one I wrote back in 2014:

an empty vase –
without hesitation
I cut the Magnolia

Well … I think I have given you enough inspiration for this week’s episode of Heeding Haiku With …

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.
