Morning Glory

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome to a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … This week I have a nice theme for you to create your haiku or haibun with … Morning Glory … I think you all know this beautiful flower, maybe not, but I think (for sure) that you know that beautiful haiku by Chiyo-Ni about the Morning Glory:

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

© Chiyo-Ni (Tr. Patricia Donegan, taken from “Chiyo-Ni Woman Haiku Master”)

Create your haiku or haibun following the classical rules (5-7-5 syllables; seasonword; cutting word; deeper meaning; interchaneable 1st and 3rd line; a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water). Your haibun may have a maximum of 150 words (including the haiku).

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.
