hushed dawn

December Haiku Share

Thanks to Kirsten Cliff for giving me the idea to pull haiku from some of our collaborative rengay. I never thought of them as stand-alone haiku before, until I re-read them all again yesterday and realized that each haiku really did have a life of its own, outside of the rengay. The starter haiku below is from “The Scent of Pine” , the first (of thirteen!) rengay that Kirsten and I wrote together this year:

hushed dawn
bird tracks
in the snow

From “The Scent of Pine” rengay with Kirsten Cliff; A Hundred Gourds 1:3, June 2012


Suggested themes: dawn, birds, snow, winter, or animal tracks. Or pull a haiku from a rengay you have written. If you missed the initial post, click here to read about the month long haiku challenge I am holding right here on my blog this December.
