My response to the prompt
pea soup fog
lacy frost on windows
From the Carpe Diem prompt:
We are busy with exploring modern kigo (seasonwords) compiled by Jane Reichhold in “A Dictionary of Haiku”. Today I love to share another nice modern kigo, fog/ripe.
Both are the foundation of the magical early winter morning after a good night with frost.
They are together the sculpture of those wonderful ripe, that fragile substance with covers the world after the night’s frost.
The prompt by
This week I love to challenge you all a bit more to write a short chained poem
with a maximum of eight stanza following the classical rules
(5-7-5; 7-7; 5-7-5; 7-7; 5-7-5; 7-7; 5-7-5; 7-7)
and your last stanza (classically called “ageku”)
has to close the chain by associating on the first stanza.
Of course you don’t need to use the classical syllables count, but that’s up to you.
Not an easy task I think, but therefore I give you all 24 hours instead of 18 hours … So you have to write a chained poem (Renga) of maximum eight (8) stanza inspired on the image and the prompt WINTER WONDERLAND within 24 hours.
What a wonderful winterland don’t you think too? Look at the snow and that gorgeous color of the Camelia must be a source of inspiration for you all.
