Carpe Diem #32, All Souls Night/Halloween

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today our first Carpe Diem prompt for November All Souls Night/Halloween and a new logo for this month. I wonder how this month will go. Will Carpe Diem grow further? Will I read wonderful haiku again? We shall see.
Our first Carpe Diem month was really great. I am glad that I can host this event for another month. Of course at the end of this month I will grant the Carpe Diem Award for November to one of our haijins. Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku with Carpe Diem.
Our first prompt isn't easy and therefore I hope to inspire you with a nice You Tube video of Loreena McKennitt 'Mummer's Dance', this is also the prompt for tomorrow, but I had to share this wonderful video based on the wonderful song by Loreena McKennitt.

Listen to the music and maybe it will inspire you to write a haiku.

Here's mine:

all souls night
the sound of howling wolves
awaken the dead

awaken the dead
by singing holy hymns
all souls night

I love it when a haiku feels good.

This prompt will stay on 'till November 2nd 11.59 AM (CET). The new episode of Carpe Diem I will post today around 10.00 PM (CET). The prompt than is mummer's dance/all souls day.

Enjoy the fun, be inspired and share your haiku with us here on Carpe Diem.


  1. If it 'feels good' ~ you know it is right ~ wonderful haiku for the seasonal night ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

  2. Thanks for the fearful prompt.
    Howling wolves ... holy hymns ... dead awaken, so scary, I am terrified!!!

  3. Right in with the spirit ... the veil is said to be very thin these past few days. :) Thank you for hosting.

  4. Thank you all for those kind words you are sprinkling on me. It's really wonderful to feel that a haiku (or haiku set) feels good.
