A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
While The Netherlands are “suffering” of a heatwave I love to “talk” about virtuality as we know it nowadays through the Internet. Especially about virtual journeys. Maybe you know that I host a daily meme titled “Carpe Diem Haiku Kai” (CDHK) on Blogger (by Google). At CDHK we travel a lot along the virtual highway and we have visited several countries. For example we have done a few virtual pilgrimages and we made a journey straight through the Andian Mountains and straight through the former USSR.
Next to those virtual journeys we sometimes read a novel or a poetry book. It’s a joy to bring those journeys and it gives me a kind of satisfaction and the idea that I have seen more of the world than my own country.
This week the theme is “virtual journey”. And the task is to write a haibun (with a maximum of 300 words, including the haiku) or a haiku following the classical rules (5-7-5, seasonword, cuttingword, deeper layer, interchangeable first and third line), maybe you can try to use for example comparison or juxtaposition.
You can choose your own virtual journey you maybe made to a country far from the place were you are living.
A nice task I think.
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.
