Interesting challenge by Chèvrefeuille
Dear friends of MLMM,
Time flies if you have fun, they say. To me haiku, tanka and all other Japanese poetry forms are fun and they take … for sure a lot of my time, but to me that doesn’t matter. And that brings me to our challenge this week.
I love to challenge you to write a haibun inspired on the proverb “time flies if you have fun”. And (of course) I have a few restrictions to it. Here they are:
1. start with a haiku and end with a haiku
2. try to place your haibun (and the haiku) in one of the four seasons, you may choose the season yourself
3. your haibun may have a maximum of 250 words, including the haiku.
