A Classical Haiku
Furious dimmed skies roar
Rain’s hammering the cold earth—
Mama, please be home

In response to Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie.
This week I love to challenge you to create a classical haiku following the classical rules:
- 5-7-5 syllables
- you have to use a seasonword (or kigo)
- you have to use a cutting word (or kireji) (like (:), (,) or (-) just punctuation
- your haiku has to describe a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water
- try to catch a deeper meaning in it
- and last but not least, try to create a haiku in which it is possible to interchange the first and third line
The theme is “prayer”.
Head over here to join the fun!
