Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our Kai. This month it's all about kigo, seasonwords, and today I love to challenge you to create haiku or tanka inspired on the following video:
This dance is called "parasol dance" and parasol (haru higasa) is our prompt for today. So have fun!
A few haiku by Issa about "parasol":
sora iro no kasa no tsuzuku ya hana sakari
one by one...
blossoms at their peak
hana chiru ya higasa no kage no no sakamori
in the shade of parasols
geta haite hoso nawa wataru higasa kana
in wooden clogs
crossing a narrow rope...
And here is mine inspired on this theme for today:
while the music is playing
cherry blossoms fall
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until April 23rd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, cherry blossom, later on. For now ... just enjoy and be part of it ...
