full moon of winter
What a joy to present you a new episode of “make the haiku complete”. I think that I have a nice (tough) challenge for you all.
For this episode I have chosen to challenge you to write a second line towards a given haiku. This time it’s really a hard challenge, because writing a second line is more difficult than writing a 1st or 3rd line to complete a haiku. To make it even more difficult … the second line must be 7 syllables, as is the “rule” for the classic haiku.
Here’s my completion:full moon of winter Boreas breath blankets boughs departing geese
A (very) little background: Boreas is one of four directional Anemoi (wind-gods) in Greek Mythology. He is the North Wind, bringer of cold and ice, a god of winter. To learn far more, if you’re interested, click the link on his name to be taken to his page at www.theoi.com.
Join in with your own completion over at Carpe Diem.
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
