This Thursday, The United States celebrates Thanksgiving. As Autumn progresses towards winter, the last color of autumn leaves fade, the last holdouts fall. It’s truly a time of dying, so a holiday that commemorates gratitude is a refreshing sign of contradiction.
This week’s kigo is Thanksgiving. Write your haikai poem (haiku, senryu, tanka, haibun, renga, troiku, etc.) that includes or references this holiday.
Here’s how the challenge works:
1. Write your haikai poem (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, renga, etc.)
2. Ping-back to the Challenge by placing a link to it in your post.
3. Comment with a link to your post.
