For Ronovan Writes’ Weekly Haiku Challenge, I’m contributing two haiku this time around. The first is an emulation of traditional haiku styles, with an attempted use of kigo. The second is…well, my developing experimental rendition of (multi-)haiku. Both are intended to stem from the prompt words “stag” and “noise,” though I strayed from their explicit uses. Anyway, enjoy!
A hermit’s painting,
brushstrokes soaring over shrubs—
| velvet touch seasons
| shed staggering silence past
| rustling bucks rattle
