haiku Shuukan #26 Zapateado

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's almost over our first 26 weeks of Haiku Shuukan. Today I will share the last prompt of these 26 weeks, Zapateado.

After this week's prompt I will try to create a new prompt-list for Haiku Shuukan until the last Friday of this year ... Why? I am having second thoughts about this weekly haiku meme ... I don't know yet if I am going on with this weekly meme ...

I have created a new logo by the way for the upcoming weeks here it is:

Zapateado is a kind of dance ... it's a dance from Spain and Mexico and it's similar with Flamenco and tap-dance. Here I have a nice video with Zapateado ... dancers ... it's a short video, but it gives you an idea what Zapateado is.

What a joyful dance this is ... it's a bit similar with "The Lord of the Dance", Irish folk-dance .... but I like this Zapateado more

Well ... what do you think of this haiku?
This episode will be open for your submissions October 17th at noon (CET) and will remain open until next Friday October 24th at noon (CET).


  1. What a neat dance! Thanks for teaching us about it. The word zapateado makes sense now -- "shoe" in Spanish is "zapato".

  2. PS -- love the new logo too :)
