Here’s to last week’s participating poets, for their contributions to #haikai challenge #5 (10/28/17)–Halloween:
Onward, now, to this week’s challenge:
It’s November fourth. November 1st and 2nd collectively have been called the Catholic Days of the Dead. November the first is the Feast of All Saints in the Catholic Tradition. November the Second is the Feast of All Souls. What better heterodox kigo could there be, then, but saints and souls? Your mission then, should you choose to accept it, is to compose a haikai poem–haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, renga, or kyoka–that includes, or references, saints and souls.
Here’s how the challenge works:
1. Write a haikai poem (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, renga, or kyoka)
2. Ping-back to the Challenge by placing a link to it in your post.
3. Comment with a link to your post.
Write on, poets! Until “The Saints go marching in…” 🙂
