comfy in bed
I listen to the night breeze
rustling leaves

My response to Carpe Diem #1520 Kanshicho … in the way of Chinese poetry (free-styling with haiku)

I can’t believe we have already reached the letter K f- or Kanshicho, a free-style haiku form that Carpe Diem explored back in 2014. Chèvrefeuille explains that Kanshicho is written in the style of Chinese verse, in which the breaking of the 5-7-5 rule is no exception. He also breaks the name down in to separate “onji” and explains what Kanshicho was meant to be.

Our challenge is to write a haiku in which the meaning of Kanshicho can be seen or found, expressing the extravagance and pride of the poet with the frivolity of the flight of a butterfly.
