Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, December 13th 2017, first snow


Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … We are “running” towards the end of this year. Here in The Netherlands we have a period of heavy snow fall and that makes me happy, but also a bit sad, because through this weather a lot of people, elderly people, disabled people can not go out, because it’s to dangerous.

Of course that’s not were this new episode of Heeding Haiku With … is about. This week I love to challenge you to create haiku or haibun in which you have to use the classical kigo (season word) “first snow”. A few examples written by myself:

first snow has fallen
prints of bare feet to the fence –
sweeping the path

virgin snow
stepping into it like a child
bare footed

winter morning
the fragile light of the sun
reflects in the snow

a cold moonlit night
just the sound of fresh fallen snow –
wandering over the moors

Have fun!

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.
