Carpe Diem #569, Corn

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a wonderful Saijiki Jan Reichhold has compiled with her "A Dictionary of Haiku" it's a rich source for inspirational modern kigo (or seasonwords). And we have already seen and read wonderful kigo this month all for autumn.
Today we are going further with the exploration of Jane's Saijiki and today our prompt is Corn and here is the example Jane shared in that Saijiki:

harvest moon
a bulging corn crib
releases it

I look at autumn's sky and listen,

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until September 28th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, fallen leaves, later on. For now ... have fun!


  1. "lost in the corn fields" is a beautiful haiku, Chev. Well done :)

  2. Lost in the corn fields -- I think about that film with Cary Grant being hunted through the corn-fields by an airplane...

  3. Ah, getting lost in the corn fields... 'round these parts that's a family past time in autumn.
    Though I've never actually done it... or rather paid to do so.
    I'll post my bit tomorrow. Hopefully it will be a-maize-ing. :)

  4. We warn our young children about wandering into cornfields...but a corn maze is a fun place to get lost! Nice fall prompt, Chèvre.

    1. Yes, that is what my piece is about. The corn mazes can be quite creative. :)
