This blog is about haiku. A classical haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables. Chèvrefeuille (the pseudonym of Kristjaan Panneman, a Dutch haiku poet) however writes his haiku in the Kanshicho-style. In the Kanshicho-style the classical syllable count isn't used. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), a haiku poet, wrote his haiku in Kanshicho-style for several years, but he returned to the classical way of haiku writing. !!! Anonymous comments will be seen as SPAM !!!.

Tackle It Tuesday, kigo (seasonword)
Another week has gone. I am busy with the September Heights Challenge to write an every day haiku on a given prompt and I have seen several of you, my dear Haijin, posting wonderful haiku on September Heights.
As you could have read in Tackle It Tuesday´s Preview of September 7th this week the prompt is Kigo (or seasonword). One of the basic rules for haiku is the use of a kigo to place a haiku in the right time of the year. For example: Moon is a kigo for Autumn. Another example: Butterflies are a kigo for Summer.
walking along the seashore -
the sound of waves
the sound of waves
scattering on the beach
Must be an easy one to do I think. So enjoy the fun, be inspired and please leave a comment after linking.

Good day my dear Haijin,
A new Tackle It Tuesday is on. This week's theme is Kigo (or seasonword). Try to write a haiku (or two) with a kigo in it.
Have fun, be inspired and please ... write a comment after linking.
I really enjoyed your preview of kigo, nicely explained. As always your haiku are beautiful. I love the thought of the sound of waves scattering.
I live on the seashore, and you have captured a summer's eve stroll on the wave-sparked sand....beautiful.....
Love images of 'midsummer night' coming to mind in your excellent haiku ~ (A Creative Harbor)
