Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, June 14th 2017 frog



Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week it is time again for haiku. Recently I created an all new E-book inspired on Basho’s famous “frog pond” haiku:

old pond
frogs jump in
sound of water

So this week’s haiku challenge is to create a haiku inspired on this famous haiku themed “frog”. Here are a few which I created myself:

croaking frogs
scent of the old pond
in the evening

the little child
reaches for the water lilies
without seeing the frog

And now it is up to you …

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.

    spring photo shoot—
    vain frog sits posing
    at his lake reflection

    tongues of frogs extend
    long aerial runways that
    force-land dragonflies
