Carpe Diem Special #50, Kikaku’s “Kagura Dance at night “

This prompt is a haiku from Takarai Kikaku ‘Kagura Dance At Night’.

Kagura dance at night
the performer’s breath white
inside his mask

My take on the prompt…

steamy breath rises
the kagaru demons dance
a shinto shuffle

Smiles, love and laughter

    Shinto shuffle are two words that wouldn’t have come to my mind but they made me smile. Most focused on the breath. I don’t think I did. How did I miss that as the focus? Going to go check now.


  3. A new dance is born the Shinto Shuffle … awesome idea … how does it go that dance ? 🙂
