The Haiku Challenge day 28


Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 - Day 28 – February 28th – Theme or Word: YOUR BLOG NAME FORM: Haiku + Form of your Wish

Chèvrefeuille or Honeysuckle
Chèvrefeuille's Haiku-blog is the name of my weblog. It's my 'Nom de Plume' Chèvrefeuille. With that pseudonym I follow in the footsteps of the classical haiku masters as e.g. Matsuo Basho and Kobayashi Issa. As Chèvrefeuille I write haiku since the start of this millennium. Before that I wrote my haiku as Kristjaan Panneman (that's my real name) and became a well known Haiku Poet in my country.
Since I am using my nom de plume I became also an international known haiku poet. Several years ago I started my first weblog Chèvrefeuille's Haiku-blog on Blogger. Now a days I have four weblogs all about haiku or other poetry forms.

For todays challenge I have written the following set of haiku:

scent of Honeysuckle
arouses my senses
this hot summer night

searching my inner self
following the way of Honeysuckle
path of wisdom (*)

(*) Honeysuckle, in her spiritual meaning is the path of wisdom to find your inner self.

midsummer night
Honeysuckle in full bloom
Ah! that perfume


(Chèvrefeuille is French for Honeysuckle)




Another one:

scent of Honeysuckle
the smell of dew on her flowers
Holy incense


Well ... see you tomorrow when the last day of The Haiku Challenge is on ... I shall miss it ...

Sincerely,

I love your choice of blog name. And you live up to it :-)
Honeysuckle is much prettier than "goat leaf" which is how chèvrefeuille translates literally!
