Yes, life happened. I missed posting the #Haikai challenge last week. So why not a double-header this week?

The sun sets earlier and earlier here in “New York’s backyard.” That means that the crickets have longer to sing their song. Autumn weather sneaks in between the last heat waves of the dog days. With the fall season, expect the autumn annuals to bloom, like the morning-glory.

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to either the cricket (koorogi) or the morning-glory (asagao).

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.

Let the sight of morning-glories and the sound of crickets inspire and comfort you, haijin!
