Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are soon coming at the end of this month of Carpe Diem and we have to go a few episodes. Today a very special episode. Why? This episode is on 'Awakening' (provided by Cathy of Haiku Plate Special) and haiku was to me an awakening to become a better man who didn't have need for a lot of words to say what his feelings are. Haiku became to me a kind of drug ... I cannot without this wonderful Japanese poetry and have to write (almost) every day a haiku or few.
Awakening brought at first the movie 'Awakening' in my mind. It's a wonderful movie with Rebecca Hall and Dominic West. It's a movie on exposing the hoaxs of paranormal sightings. A short take on the movie:
In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves.

Another kind of Awakening is more likely for use in haiku and that is Bodhi (Enlightenment or Awakening) a strong part in Buddhism.
Enough ... science for today. I love sharing knowledge, but sometimes I go on to long. So enough on Awakening ... let's go do some haiku composing on Awakening.
refreshed and full new energy
haiku brought Buddhism closer

writing how you feel and think
a strong way to be creative
Hm ... not a very strong cascading haiku, but I enjoyed writing it. So I hope you all are inspired to write and share new haiku on our prompt for today 'Awakening'. This prompt will stay on 'til April 29th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our fifth Carpe Diem Special, a haiku written by myself, later on today around 10.00 PM (CET). Here after I will give already the haiku which I love to share with you.
