Moving forward:


It’s late Autumn in the northern hemisphere, but it already looks and feels like winter. The forecast already calls for scattered snow flurries and a possible shower in the Hudson River Valley of New York State. And it is cold outside!


All this brings to mind an appropriate Winter kigo, winter mountains (fuyu no yama). What majesty the mountains have, standing tall and bearing all that the elements bring their way! What better icon of winter can there be than a snow-covered peak?


This week, write the haikai poem of you choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that states or references winter mountains (fuyu no yama).


As always:

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.


Savor the mountaintop, haijin!
