A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Dear friends of MLMM,
As you maybe know one of the classic rules of haiku is the use of a “kigo” (seasonword), a word that points towards the season in which the haiku was created. This week I have chosen a classical kigo for you to work with.
The kigo I have chosen is taken from the section “autumn, the season”, a part of a traditional Saijiki (compilation of seasonwords), long night (yonaga). I think you all will understand that “yonaga” (long night) points towards the nights that are becoming longer during autumn.
Your “task”? Create haiku or haibun with the given classical kigo, no need to use it specifically as the seasonword, but in your haiku or haibun, I can “read” that you are pointing to this kigo through the scene or another synonymous word.
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.
