My response to prompt “#151, Haru Fukashi (Deep Spring)” for Carpe Diem ~ March 2013 prompts, which are centered around “kigo” or “season words” for spring.

This is an experiment. I decided to push some of my own buttons and disregard some of the things I try to follow thinking they make for better ku.  So this is different for me and it is play and fun too. Occasionally I do such things as this—including the play with “Bottomless Bound” for the kigo “Deep Spring”. Do you think this is haiku? Do you think it is good haiku? What do you think makes haiku, haiku?

March on Carpe Diem has been divided up into three different seasons of spring kigo: Early-Spring, Mid-Spring and Late-Spring. Haru Fukashi (Deep Spring) is a Late-Spring kigo. The informative prompt and responses to this prompt can be found on the Carpe Diem Blog.

Etegami is the Japanese Folk Art of writing (which can be haiku but does not have to be haiku) and drawing (with or without color), intended to be sent between friends through a postal service, often as a postcard (although it does not have to be a postcard either). 

This work is now available on the 19 Planets Cafepress shop postcard page.

Be fun—Write Haiku – Aloha
