A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week I love to challenge you to create haiku (or haibun) from three given haiku. The goal is to create a new haiku through a kind of fusion from three given haiku. I will give you three haiku. Read them and try to “fuse” them into one haiku. If you like to create a haibun than your so called “fusion”-haiku has to be used in that haibun. Your haibun may count a maximum of 150 words.
Here are the three haiku to use for your “fusion”. Three haiku by Basho (1644-1694) in a translation by renown Jane reichhold (1937-2016):
falling sick on a journey
my dream goes wandering
over a field of dried grass *
with quilts over the head
such a cold night
a rainy day
the autumn world
of a border town
© Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) (Tr. Jane Reichhold)
And now … well try to create a so called “fusion”-haiku from the above three haiku and if you like to write a haibun you have to use your “fusion”-haiku.
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.
