A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Last week I gave you the task to create haiku inspired on a quote and I have read nice responses, but I also thought “Why do I ask you to create bi-weekly a haiku or haibun? Why not give you the freedom to choose for haiku or haibun?” I don’t know, because I think both form are connected with each other. So from this week on I will give you the freedom to choose for haiku or haibun. It gives you more choice …. And isn’t that what we are all striving for “freedom of choice?”
So I will give you a theme to work with and give you the choice to create a haiku or a haibun, or maybe both.
This week I have a nice haiku for you from one of the classical haiku masters to work with, the haiku-poet for this week is Mizuhara Shuoshi (1892-1981) it is a not so well known haiku, but he has written very beautiful haiku.
A new year begins
With the blooming
Of a single frosty rose
Mizuhara Shuoshi (1892-1981)
A beauty to work with I think. This week your haiku or haibun must inspired on this haiku by Shuoshi.
