Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, April 10th 2019, new beginnings

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new episode of Heeding Haiku With … MLMM’s feature about haiku and haibun, two wonderful kinds of Japanese poetry. A while ago I decided to give you only a theme for this feature and maybe some rules to use. This week I love to challenge you to create a classical haiku or a classical haibun themed “New Beginnings”.

I can hear you say “classical haiku or haibun?”: Let me give you a the most important classical rules for haiku (and haibun):

  1. A moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown in water;
  2. A seasonword (kigo), a word that points towards the season in which the haiku was written;
  3. A cuttingword (kireji), in western languages that means interpunction;
  4. It’s mostly a scene in nature;
  5. Mostly a Buddhistic background or spiritual meaning;
  6. First and Third line are interchangeable.

Ofcourse there are a lot more rules for classical haiku, but these are the most important.

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.
