Farmer’s Blessing – Bussokusekika Poem

Sharing Deborah’s take on the prompt –


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:

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
