Dear friends of MLMM,

Thank you all for being part of this wonderful community of poets from all over the world. We have all different backgrounds, but we all have one thing in common … we love poetry and we love to create poetry.

It’s autumn on the Northern Hemisphere and everywere you look you can see the beauty of the most wonderful autumn flower, the Chrysanthemum. The Chrysanthemum is by the way a classical kigo (seasonword) for autumn.

This week I love to challenge you to create a haiku or haibun about Chrysanthemums and I have a few “rules”:

You may use a maximum of 150 words for your haibun (including the haiku) and the haiku has to be a classical one, so think about the rules like the syllables, the use of kigo, the use of kireji or for example interchangeable first and third line.
