Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I am very moved by all of your responses on our last post about my brother and all the kind and loving words you have sprinkled on me ... thank you ... this makes our haiku-family ... feeling one trough haiku and the joy haiku brings us all.
MMT brought a little mistake under my attention and that I have corrected. I had overseen December 4th in our promptlist, so I have brought in another nice modern kigo based on Jane's "A Dictionary of Haiku".
Today our prompt is delight in company and I think this prompt fits our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai so well. However aren't physical in each other's company, but through haiku we are delighted with our company, our haiku-family. It feels really great to see how CDHK has evolved to a family of loving and caring haiku poets and that's all thanks to you all my dear Haijin, visitors and travelers.
I love to ask you to look at this prompt as if it was an episode of our CD special feature, "Romancing the Haiku", because I think this prompt is so right for romance ...
As I look at the examples of Jane than she has a great feeling for this prompt. She gave a few wonderful examples and I love to share a few with you all:
the brief language
under winter quilts
your tip glows
as incense burns
ashore in winter storm
we stick together
only stars as my compass -
cry of a snowy owl
