Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
"What will the future bring us?" That's a question which a lot of people ask themselves. The future, the time which lays in front of us, what will it bring? Where do I stand in my life, say ... over ten years?
I think I am still at work as a nurse, for sure I will be writing haiku, because haiku is my life. Will I live in the same city than? Will Carpe Diem still exist? Nothing can be said about that, it's all in the future. As Ilook to the near future than I can say already 'June will be a great haiku month, because we have all classical kigo (seasonwords) for Summer. It will again be a joy to be your host here on Carpe Diem and I am looking forward to all your wonderful haiku. As I look a bit further in the near future I see the nice prompt-list for July, which I have already prepared. By the way that list I will share with you somewhere around June 15th. And ... I have already some ideas for August, but that's all in the near future.

the way to wisdom
As I was preparing this episode I thought 'Maybe I can lay the Tarot to see the future of Carpe Diem, but than I thought no I can't do that, because the Tarot is Divine (as we have seen and discovered) and not suitable for occult matters such as fortunetelling or divination'. But I have to say that I was tempted to do it.
The near future looks great, so I don't need to know what will come in the future. I only will say this: "I hope that I can be your host here on Carpe Diem for a long time. I hope that our haiku-community will grow and that more haiku-poets will find their way to Carpe Diem'.
The future what will it bring us? I don't know, but that we have a future that's for sure.

When I was preparing this episode, it was already late in the evening the moon was hidden behind clouds and you could only see a thin line of light ... the future lays behind the veil ...
This prompt will stay on 'til June 1st 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new episode, the first of a new month of Carpe Diem, mijikayo (short night), later on today around 10.00 PM (CET).
