kigo

Carpe Diem #1049 Fish and frogs


Chèvrefeuille's prompt:

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
As I was preparing the prompt-list for September I ran into several "strange" modern kigo in Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" and one of those "strange" modern kigo was our prompt for today fish and frogs.

Here are a few examples for this modern kigo:
heron silence
landing in the middle
of frog silence

silence
larger on the lily pad
a frog

delicate pastels
in the pain of a pinch
from a crab

new moons
at the edge of the pond
fish milt
