Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's a real joyful day today, because I have published our new Carpe Diem Haiku Kai feature "Ask Jane ..." and have introduced it to you all. I hope this new feature will bring a lot of joy to you all and I hope to read wonderful questions and answers about haiku by Jane Reichhold.
As this month is running to it's end I am still excited about this all new feature above I even slept really bad because of my excitement. As we are on our way to our second anniversary next month we have still a few prompts to go based on Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku", a modern Saijiki in which Jane has compiled a lot of modern kigo (seasonwords) for all seasons.
This month we are exploring her modern kigo for autumn and today our prompt is Mushrooms. Mushrooms are really an autumn feature, because in this season we can see a lot of mushrooms coming up. So I think this prompt has no need for a long introduction or post ...
Here are a few of Jane's example-haiku for this prompt:
