Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 24th 2018, reality caught

mist over the heath

Dear friends of MLMM,

During circumstances this will not be a very long post. I will only give you the “goal” for this week: Try to catch reality in your haiku or haibun. Try to describe reality as you are experiencing it in your life. This way of writing haiku is called “shasei”, it’s invented by Masaoka Shiki, one of the four greatest haiku poets ever and the haiku poet who brought haiku into the 20th century.

Here is an example of “shasei” by Masaoka Shiki:

Come spring as of old.
When such revenues of rice.
Braced this castle town!

Have fun!

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.
