Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms such as choka and kikobun. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. ++ ALL WORKS PUBLISHED ARE COPYRIGHTED AND THE RIGHTS BELONG TO THE AUTHORS ++ !!!

Another nice day in Carpe Diem's haiku paradise has started. Today we share haiku on Confrontation, not an easy prompt I think. This prompt can be taken positive or negative. Confrontation with something as bad as a terminal illness of being confrontated with the deeper knowledge of your Higher Self. If the confrontation is positive or negative it always has impact on your life and the lives of the ones around you.
A video of a song from Les Miserables in which the Confrontation collides between the revolting people. A wonderful song, this man sings awesome ... I like that deep brown sound of his voice.
enemies collide in battle - bloodstained earth
silent witness of a crime a mouse was eaten
a mouse was eaten
after thrown out of the kitchen - screaming housekeeper
Well ... what do you think? I have tried to bring a little bit humor in this series of haiku on confrontation and I think I have succeeded. But that's not up to me to decide.
This prompt will stay on 'til July 28th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next episode, Liberation later on today around 8.00 PM (CET) !! Confrontation is open for submissions at 8.00 PM (CET) !!
By the way: I have gained permission of Karunesh and Oreade Music to use his music next month. I was excited when I got that permission. So next month will be a marvelous month with all day wonderful musical pieces by Karunesh (The permission email you can find at the News page).
