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 ++ !!!

To give you
all the space to share your haiku, senryu, tanka, kyoka and all other Japanese
kinds of poetry I have launched a little while ago the Carpe Diem's Freestyle
feature. I will try to publish a Freestyle episode once a month.
is what it is ... just share your poetry without a given prompt, maybe you have
read a wonderful haiku, or did you write an awesome haiku but it didn't suit to
the prompts given. Then this is the place to share that poetry with Carpe Diem. Feel free to share your poetry and enjoy the publishing here at Carpe Diem
For this episode of "Free-style" I love to share a "Troiku" I have used one of my favorite haiku written by my Master Basho:
the pumpkins look cool flecked with mud from the morning dew
1: the pumpkins look cool almost humanlike - all souls night
2: flecked with mud the white chrysanthemums after the storm
3: from the morning dew Monarch butterfly drinks to life -
sound of funeral bells
Awesome! What a nice Troiku, even better then I thought. After reading it twice aloud I felt that there is a connection between all three haiku destilled from the haiku by Basho.
Well I hope
you liked it and I love to invite you all to share your own Freestyle here with
us. This Freestyle-episode will stay on 'till November 15th 11.59 AM (CET) and
I will try to publish that same day the new episode of Freestyle.
