Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
To honor all those little creatures, like flees, bugs, ants and so on, I have created a new feature here at our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. As haiku-poets we are in the middle of nature and we all observe the most tiny things (flowers, insects and so on) on Mother Earth's surface and above her surface.
Basho and Issa were haiku-poets who watched closely to their surroundings and wrote/composed haiku about those little creatures, those tiny little things in nature.
This new feature is meant to be for those tiny creatures, flowers and so on and to learn us all to watch more closely to the details, those wonderful details, of Mother Nature. For example I have found a nice haiku by Issa about a Grasshopper (thanks Jen for pointing me to that haiku):
take care...do not leap and crush
these pearls of dewdrop
underneath the helmet
a cricket chirping.
this lazy summer evening -
song of a cricket
