Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, September 25th 2019, autumn equinox

start of autumn

Dear friends of MLMM,

Welcome at a new week of Heeding Haiku With … This week I have chosen to challenge you to create a classical haiku or classical Haibun. As you all know last Monday Autumn started … so for this week the theme is “autumn equinox”.

Classical rules for haiku are: 1.) 5-7-5 syllables; 2.) a seasonword (kigo); 3.) a cuttingword (kireji) in western haiku mostly interpunction is used for that; 4.) always a nature theme; 5.) a deeper meaning; 6.) interchaneable first and third line.

These rules you have to use this week and if you choose to create a haibun, your haibun can count a maximum of 250 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.
