Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to bring to you an all new episode of our Haiku Kai. As you know we are exploring classical and modern kigo for winter and today I have a nice modern kigo extracted from Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku", fields.
By the way this a "time challenge" episode "Throw That Pebble", so you have only 24 hours to respond on this prompt.
Here are a few examples about this modern kigo by Jane herself:
fenced in by fields
diminishing into snowflakes
encircling the snowy field
|Credits: Winter Field(s)|
And of course an all new haiku written by myself. This one circled through my mind whole night long but I hadn't the courage to write it down. I just had to memorize it again and again, but finally I came up with this version (say a rough diamond which needs some polishing):
disgracing it would be a sin
the first bare step
I like this version, but I am not sure if it fits the prompt or that it shows the prompt as I hoped.
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until January 23rd 7.00 PM (CET). So you have only 24 hours to respond. I will (try to) publish our new episode, Kangetsu (cold moon), later on. Have fun! And remember you have only 24 hours to respond!!
