it’s all about Carpe Diem lately – I love haiku

 

Chevrefeuille of Carpe Diem has wonderful haiku challenges in my opinion 🙂 why not click take a look, and join in?

 

Buson’s ‘a hand ball’ – revise that haiku

a hand-ball,

wet with spring rain falling

on the roof

Bodhi’s revision

never ending rain

village children mourning play

orange gutter ball

 

And this one, we’re given the last two lines and need to write the first line to complete the haiku

mocks me on the wind

is it not the scent of plum-blossoms

rising up to heaven?
