Haiku Shuukan #4, Dreamcatcher

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy to present our fourth prompt of Haiku Shuukan. This week the prompt is Dreamcatcher and it has in some way a connection with our other haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai were we are busy with a month full of folktales, myths, legends and saga.
The Dreamcatcher has its roots in the Native American culture and is also used in a lot of other homes and families to protect the people for bad dreams. Back into 2012 I have done a "Tackle It Tuesday"-episode with this same prompt "dreamcatcher". So maybe ... for your inspiration you can visit that weblog too.

This was my haiku then:

catching dreams
bended willow branches
feathers and beads
feathers and beads
together catching good dreams
no more nightmares

no more nightmares
native indian dreamcatcher
catches dreams

Credits: Dreamcatcher

Well ... this was our prompt for this week, have fun, be inspired and share your haiku with us all here at Haiku Shuukan.
This episode is open for your submissions until May 16th noon (CET).


  1. I love this's so pretty! Liked your Haiku too. :D

  2. It's amazing how often what one believes comes true if you look for it.

  3. bending
    the willow switch -
    wind in the web

    Thanks again, Kristjaan. These tough prompts really get the grey matter working!
