Haiku Shuukan #6 Festival

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another week has gone and a new Haiku Shuukan episode is ahead of us. This week our prompt is Festival.
Everywhere on our little blue planet we have festivals and I think I don't have to tell you more about this prompt. In your country there will be also festivals and those festivals will be for sure an inspiration to compose haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka or haibun. Feel free to use any festival for your inspiration.

Here is a wonderful picture of a festival somewhere on our planet to help you to become inspired.

Children's Day, a Japanese Festival

And here is my response on this prompt:

Children's Day

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will stay open until May 30th at noon. I will post our new episode around that time. Next week our prompt will be:  Gothic.

Have fun! Be inspired and share your haiku with us all here at Haiku Shuukan.


  1. Isn't everyday...Children's day :)
    I think they would like to think so.

    1. Of course it's always Children's Day, but fathers and mothers also have their own festival-days ...and fathers and mothers day is in my opinion also every day.
      But ... it doesn't matter everything is worth to have its own festivity ... I like all those festivals.

    2. Some folks over do some holidays - When one is in a good relationship and has a wonderful family - then everyday is special. :) So I don't mind when my children or my husband overlook special calendar days ;)

  2. I hope you will enjoy our Bengali festival "bhai phonta" :)

  3. Seems I missed this one.
