Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another day in haiku paradise. Yesterday we had our first Chiyo-Ni Special and I have read wonderful haiku nspired on the one I gave by Chiyo-Ni. It was a real joy to read and comment them. Well ... a nice 'bridge' to our prompt for today (smiles).
Today we share haiku on 'Joyful' and I hope that you all enjoy this prompt. I am looking forward to your 'joyful-haiku'.
A haiku by Issa:
matsu nae ya yagate tanin no yusuzumi
pine sapling -
before long, strangers enjoy
Another one also by Issa:
yo suzumi no yaku soku arishi kado no tsuki
keeping her appointment
to enjoy evening's cool air -
moon at the gate

A last one by Issa:
urestuge ya kaki no ko take mo waka-zakari
the fence's little bamboo
at the peak of youth
|Credits: Bamboo fence|
Isn't it a joy to read those haiku? I wonder if I can write my own haiku on 'Joyful'?
children playing on the beach -
in the frontyard
children play hide and seek -
Awesome! What a joy to write haiku on joyful (smiles).
Have fun, be creative and inspired. Share your 'joyful-haiku' with Carpe Diem.
This prompt will stay on 'till February 6th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new episode, Mariachi, later on today around 10.00 PM (CET). That will be our first prompt for a little musical trip around the world.
