Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, January 23rd 2019, skating

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … A few weeks ago I changed the way of writing this feature on MLMM. I will give you only the theme to create haiku or haibun with. This week the theme is “skating”. Here in The Netherlands skating is one of the most loved sports in winter and at the moment we have real winter … so all Dutch people are becoming “insane” again, because we can finally skate on natural ice instead of artificial ice. It’s really winter here …

Your task is to create a haiku or haibun themed “skating”. Try to create a haiku following the classical rules (short moment, seasonword, cuttingword, 5-7-5 syllables and interchangeable first and third line) and your haibun may count a maximum of 150 words.

Have fun!

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.

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.

    I’ve only ever skated on rinks… Though last year our little creek froze over for the first time in about 30 years. Not something that happens regularly here. Not enough to keep a set of skates about.
    Enjoy this haibun: Peering Into Futures

      What a joy that must have been to experience the creek frozen.

        The local critters used the frozen bridge… I didn’t attempt to cross it though 🙂
        It was beautiful to look at.

    First timer here. I saw the prompt over on Tao Talk and it just looked interesting. I had *no* idea what haibun is. My little avatar loves to skate. https://wtfaioa.wordpress.com/2019/01/23/haibun-is-not-a-japanese-dumpling/
