Today's note - kigo

parang = a genre of Trinidad and Tobago's Christmas Season Music

Kigo - a season reference. To kigo or not to kigo is now, not so much a compelling question, but rather a matter of personal style. If new to the genre, i think it builds good "haiku muscles" Or if writing in a renga (linked verse game) it is most often required.

Today's tag

And, of course, what season it is depends on where you are, as my Australian friends constantly remind me.

I am glad you explained parang to us. I like your haiga and haiku. They go together very good.

Surely Bill, and this is especially one of the things i enjoy in a renga; what one brings from their part of the planet

much love...
