Dear Haijin,visitors and travelers,
I have a new GW-post for you all in which Jen of Blog It Or Lose It will write about "Pop culture in haiku and senryu". I think this is a very interesting GW-post and I hope you all enjoy it.
First of all, thank you, Chèvrefeuille, for allowing me to share some thoughts with the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai family.
- Vastra, “Deep Breath” – Doctor Who
in ninety degree heat –
a denim veil
Now. Before you say “Doctor Who Haiku? Is she serious? Is ‘pop culture’ appropriate?” I suggest that it might not be as inappropriate as you think. Basho wrote an iris haiku upon the sudden death of his favorite Kabuki performer, Motome:
only in one night
pining for flowers
or a tune from Gichiki
|Credits: Star Trek|
the sound of a braking train -
the TARDIS landing
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until October 17th at noon (CET). I will post our next episode, Magic Fields (August 2013), later on.
