Looking ahead:

Labor Day weekend begins. As Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer (and the beginning of school for many states), this weekend is the last unofficial weekend of the summer of ’19.

As such, it’s a good time to sit back, relax, and take it all in. To be. To contemplate.

Considering we begin September this week (the traditional mid-season of Autumn), what better kigo could we have than Autumn contemplation (shuushi)?

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga) that states or alludes to Autumn contemplation (shuushi.)

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.

I’m hosting Haibun Monday over at dVerse this Labor Day. Swing by the pub as we celebrate Labor! And enjoy this passing moment while it lasts, haijin!
