The prompt for Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation # 86 – Carpe Diem’s Utopia is to write a modern Utopian (excellent) haiku, while using classical rules. Those rules are listed below, to show how this haiku, while having a modern theme, is able to meet the rules for a classic haiku.
• Syllable count of 5-7-5
• Inspiration source – (short moment in time) – here, that pose, with its significance
• Season word(kigo) – here, it is “new leaves,” indicating spring
• Interchanging – the first and third lines interchangeable without losing the imagery of the haiku
