Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today the second Carpe Diem Special is on. Another haiku of Basho for your inspiration to write a new haiku (or a few haiku) classical or non-classical. Today the following haiku written by Basho:
it must have bloomed
from a wintry shower
Basho wrote this haiku in the Summer of 1683. In that time he used the Kanshicho-style for writing his haiku. In that style the syllables-count isn't a strict rule. It's the style in which I write my haiku most times. In my opinion the Kanshicho-style is more close to the Western way of writing haiku.
This is one of my haiku inspired on this one by Basho:
white as snow -
will once bloom
Be inspired and enjoy writing your haiku for today's Carpe Diem Special ... This Special will stay on 'till October 13 11.59 AM (CET).
Our next prompt is dolphin and will be posted on October 12 around 10.00 PM (CET)
