Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, July 18th 2018, mirage


Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … I create this episode in coolness of my home, because it’s very hot here in The Netherlands. Temperatures are rising above 30 degrees Celsius. That heat influenced my choice for the theme this week. Maybe you are familiar with the phenomenon of the “fata morgana” … Mirage is somewhat the same it occurs on hot days and than it seems that a road looks like water or boats sail in the sky.

This week I love to challenge you to create a classical haiku or haibun themed “mirage” and maybe the image above can help you to awaken your muses. Enjoy this challenge.

shimmering sky
behind a thin veil of heat –
seagulls cry
at the end of the road
the sky kisses the earth –
everlasting love

Have fun!
