Cool off under the waterfalls, haijin? Congratulations to last week’s contributors!
Moving right along.
If only summer was only the season of frolicking. Alas, there’s work to be done, too–especially if you own your own property. Sooner or later, it’s time to mow the lawn! With the sun and rain, that grass will grow high enough to hide a Chevy if it’s not tended. Therefore, to honor the laboring side of summer, this week’s kigo is cutting grasses [and forbs] (kusakari).
Write the haikai poem of your choice that states or references cutting grasses (kusakari).
Here’s how the challenge works:
1. write the haikai poem of your choice.
2. post the link of your post to Mister Linky.
3. pingback by posting the link to the challenge on your site.
4. read and comment on other contributors’ posts.
A post acknowledging past contributors will come!
Good luck tending those yards, haijin!
