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.
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.
