Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, November 7th 2017, Chrysanthemums

Dear friends of MLMM,

Thank you all for being part of this wonderful community of poets from all over the world. We have all different backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common … we love poetry and we love to create poetry.

It’s autumn on the Northern Hemisphere and everywere you look you can see the beauty of the most wonderful autumn flower, the Chrysanthemum. The Chrysanthemum is by the way a classical kigo (seasonword) for autumn.

This week I love to challenge you to create a haiku or haibun about Chrysanthemums and I have a few “rules”:

You may use a maximum of 150 words for your haibun (including the haiku) and the haiku has to be a classical one, so think about the rules like the syllables, the use of kigo, the use of kireji or for example interchangeable first and third line.

Well … I hope you like this challenge.

Have fun!

When you have written your haiku, please TAG Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille and Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Then add your link to the Mister Linky widget below.

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.
