Farmer’s Blessing – Bussokusekika Poem

Frank has graciously given permission for me to use the Bussokusekika form for this Haikai Challenge.  The Bussokusekika is a rare form of Japanese poetry that consists of six lines written in a 5-7-5-7-7-7 mora pattern.  David Bowles.

Written In Response To:

BrewNSpew Cafe Challenge Of The Week – harvest moon.

Frank J. Tassone Haikai Challenge #104 (9/14/19):  harvest moon (meigetsu) – This year’s Harvest Moon coincided with Friday the 13th.  This week, write the haikai poem of your choice that states or alludes to the Harvest Moon (meigetsu).

golden is the glow

of summer’s end harvest moon

farmer’s evening light

shining upon seed’s fruit borne

harvested to feed the need

blessing spirit soul body
