This month at Carpe Diem all the prompts are from Jane’s Saijiki “A Dictionary of Haiku”.
In every episode, Chèvrefeuille will share haiku by Jane (and sometimes tanka) to inspire us.
All my writing for Jane Reichhold Legacy will be tanka poetry, writing tanka using one word as a prompt, I intend to do it in a way to honor Jane, hope it works, as I’m still learning.
September 24th, 2016 prompt is “Butterfly”.
inclosed grub case splits
waking fresh a chrysalis
born a butterfly
sometimes never to see life
as a bird destroys its form
