!! Open for your submissions next Sunday February 16th at 7:00 PM (CET) !!
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new Weekend Meditation episode. This weekend I love to challenge you to create a Renga With ... That beautiful feature in which you have the opportunity to create haiku with known and unknown haiku masters.
This weekend I love to challenge you to create a renga with the so called "big five" (Basho, Issa, Buson, Chiyo-Ni and Shiki). And, how immodest, one of my own haiku.
Here are the six haiku to work with:
the autumn wind:
thickets and fields also,
now and then interrupting
the butterfly's dream
the thunderstorm having cleared up
the evening sun shines on a tree
where a cicada is chirping
do not also the petals flutter down,
just like that?
in nooks and corners
flowers of the plum
ancient warriors ghosts
mists over the foreign highlands -
waiting for the full moon
Six nice haiku I think. Now it's up to you to create a renga with them by adding your two-lined stanza of approx. 7-7 syllables. You can choose your own "line-up". Enjoy this Renga challenge and have a wonderful weekend.
This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday, February 16th at 7:00 PM (CET) and will remain open until February 23rd at noon (CET). Enjoy!
