A mellowing period of cool arrived in my corner of “New York’s Backyard.” While attending my son’s Boy Scout troop’s annual Homeless Campout, I donned a fleece to ward off the chill. Today, Mira lit a fire in our fire pit, as prevailing winds sent a shiver down our spines.
After the recent heat, it’s a welcome change. And a reminder that Autumn formally arrives in nine days.
It’s therefore a ripe opportunity for this week’s kigo: new coolness (shinryoo).
This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to new coolness (shinryoo).
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.
Enjoy the refreshing coolness as Autumn comes, haijin!
