It’s Heeding Haiku with Chèvrefeuille over at the Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Blog!

Below are six (6) haiku created by Issa. The goal is to add our own two-lined stanza of approximately 14 syllables associated on the scenes in the haiku. You can choose your own “line-up” and the last stanza “ageku” has to relate to the first haiku you have chosen to make the chain complete.

In my province
grass blooms too…
cherry blossoms
scent the April breeze
a sparrow chirps in the willow

shallow river–
a dawn moon
melons cooling
in the sparkling water
curious fish circle

tonight’s moon–
how many mountains resemble
the ones back home?
moon is ever-changing
mountains can only watch

tomorrow morning
a humdrum river beach again?
summer moon
illuminates the sky
dazzling each grain of sand.

a babbling brook
chills the sake…
roses of Sharon
perfume the gentle wind
that whispers its secrets.

from the tip
of the forest ranger’s broom…
spring departs
on April’s quiet breeze
as summer sweeps in.
