Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Back in May 2017 I offered you a special feature just for fun ... the Haiku Puzzler ... your responses and feed-back were awesome on this "just for fun" feature, so I decided to go with the flow and create another Haiku Puzzler for you to "wrestle" with.
In this new Haiku Puzzler I have scrambled five haiku by classical and non-classical haiku poets and spread their lines all over a nice summer image, however that doesn't mean that all the hidden haiku have to do with summer. I just liked the image.
As I did in that first episode of the Haiku Puzzler feature I will give you a few hints for every haiku one hint.
Here are the hints for this Haiku Puzzler:
1. This haiku is an example of the “free-style” way of creating haiku by a contemporary of Shiki
2. The winning haiku of the “cherry blossom” kukai of our Haiku Kai.
3. Next to the frogpond the shadow of a crow.
4. Not a falling blossom.
5. Unconditional Love
As you have found the five haiku, please share them including the name of the poet or poetess through the linking widget.
