Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today Bjorn Brudberg provided us with the prompt rain a wonderful prompt to write haiku with. I can remember that I have once posted on Chèvrefeuille's Haikublog a haiku for Haiku Heights September Challenge 2012 with rain for prompt. I even recall that episode was a good one. So I hope for today that you, my dear Haijin, visitors and travelers, can write lovely haiku on rain. I am looking forward to your posts.
I love to share a haiku written by Kobayashi Issa, our November haiku-master:
spring rain -
growing side by side
the talking pines
The Pines 'voices' refer to the sighing of wind through their branches. And 'growing side by side' refers to married people. With this haiku came a prescript 'Congratulations on a new marriage'.
Another one by Issa:
the bright moon in raindrops
from the eaves ...
the geese depart
Both verses by Issa are well done ... they paint each a nice imagery ... in this Issa was a master.
OK ... now I have to write a haiku or two by myself ... let me think ...
on bamboo sprouts
the shimmering sunlight
the old pond's face
trembled by the heavy rains -
my face wrinkled
And what do you think of this one?
a little rainbow diamond
in the early sunlight
Well ... what a joy to write these little gems for you my dear friends.
For closure a nice haiga. Enjoy today's prompt, be inspired and creative, share your haiku with us on Carpe Diem.
This prompt will stay on 'till November 26th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new prompt love later on today around 10.00 PM (CET).
