Moving on to this week’s challenge!

November comes to a close this week. Days shorten. Leaves shrivel and drop. Winter’s chill approaches. What could be a better time to celebrate Guns N Roses’ classic single, November Rain?

This week’s unconventional kigo is “November Rain.” Say it or reference it in a haikai poem–haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, etc.–of your choice!

As always:

Hereโ€™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.


Good Writing!

Remember: Winter is Coming!
