It’s time for a new episode of Carpe Diem’s Kamishibai, or our haibun feature. The goal is to write a haibun about a given theme with a few rules. A haibun is prose and poetry entwined.
1st : You have to use the next five words: flowers; full moon; celebrating; winter and breeze
2nd : Maximum 500 words;
3rd : At least two new haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka.
We sit and await cold wintery night where darkness overshadows the light
Warming bodies by a fire. We must wear thick wool attire.
Colors all fade to grey, stealing the warmth of day,
Imaginations stay awake and beckon “do not hibernate.”
Contemplate life’s awakening with golden thoughts of spring
flower hold fast
celebrate triumphant life
spring’s first light
victors of spring
mountain’s breeze brushes your cheek
Sun’s radiant smile
touch of winter’s full moon
field a bloom
