Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 25th, 2017 raindrops

Dear friends of MLMM,

It’s my pleasure to create a new Heeding Haiku With … for you. Recently I “changed” the idea to create haibun or haiku bi-weekly into a symbiosis between haibun and haiku, Symbiosis of two wonderful forms of Japanese poetry and I like that idea. I see how you all have embraced this new way of Heeding Haiku With … and I hope this “change” will be succesful.

Today I have a nice haiku by one of our classical haiku poets to inspire you to create a haibun or a haiku. This week I have chosen for a haiku by Issa:

kusa no ha [ya] ame ni magirenu aki no tsuyu

blades of grass–
lost among the raindrops
autumn dew

© Issa (1810)(tr. David Lanoue)

The challenge for this week is to create a haibun (with a maximum of 300 words, including the haiku) or a haiku (or haiku revision) inspired on this beautiful haiku by Issa.

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 love Issa Kobayashi and have enjoyed many of David Lanoue’s translations especially in French.
