#Haiku Happenings #8: Jules’ #renga soliloquy for my current #haikai challenge!
great mother – earth
hazy daze, seeder
spreads germ across damp spring fields
ringed by old cedar
days lengthen crops will grow tall
corn will tassel, wheat will grow
farmhands toiling land;
some city dwellers only
dream of open space
ringed by concrete walls; germs spread –
kept at bay by healthy foods
come out of the haze
give thanks and praise to farmers
in every season
MLMM Sat Mix Homophone sets this week are: cedar – an evergreen tree; seeder – one who broadcasts seeds and days – more than one day; daze – to bewilder
Frank’s haikai 33
…let our kigo be Spring rain (harusame) or Autumn rain (aki no ame)
Note: germ is another word for seed.
