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.
