shiki kukai - goodbye

The theme for the Free Format section of the August shiki kukai was "Goodbye(s)/Parting Words". Sounds like an easy topic, isn't it?

I thought so too, and send in a monostich. It managed 4 votes. :(

haiku - size

I went for a 30+ km cycling trip last Monday. Should do more of these trips.

Shiki Kukai - Allusion

The free format theme for the April shiki kukai at haikuworld was 'Allusion'. Literary allusion attempts to expand the meaning of a literary source. Allusive variation (in Japanese haiku) attempts to parody other well known haiku, but for this shiki kukai, it is allowed to parody other literary souces.

My literary source was a haiku by Gary Hotham.

And, oh yes, my submission managed 3 votes. :)
