Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, November 14th 2018, journey

Dear friends of MLMM,

As you all know Heeding Haiku With … is about haiku and haibun and it’s really a joy to create this feature for MLMM. This week I love to challenge you with the theme “journey”.

As you know haibun is renown through Basho’s “Small Road Into The Deep North” (or Oku no Hosomichi). His renown haibun is a travel journal and with that the real meaning of haibun is clear … a report of a journey ….

This week I love to ask you to create a real haibun, or travel journal, like “Oku No Hosomichi”. Your haibun may count a maximum of 250 words (including the haiku).

Here is an example of a haiku that could have been part of a “real” haibun:

the train starts rolling
screams of goodbyes resounding
under the roof

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.
