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.

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 can’t think of anything that could be written to express it better.
