!! I am a bit early with posting this new episode. This week we will not have a Carpe Diem Time Glass episode !!
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
2014 Is running to an end and than we will have a whole new year, 2015, ahead of us. A year with new wonderful prompts, featured haiku-poets, articles and of course our new features "Time-Machine" and "Kukai". But that's for next month, I am busy with creating our prompt-list, but I don't think I will be on time ... of course I will try to publish our new list before the end of 2014, but I can't promise that.
Ok back to the episode of today. Today our prompt is departing year, and it is extracted from Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" ... it's a nice prompt I think and it fits (of course) the time of year ... Here is Jane's example of this prompt:
at winter's end

trees losing their green leaves -
thousand colors in return
Not really a haiku for this time of year, but I think it's a nice one to give an image to departing.
Ok ... another one ... more in the image and time of this year:
sweeping the garden
at the end of this year
to start fresh
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until January 1st at noon (CET). I will try to post our last episode of this year, our last GW-post of this year, later on.PS.: I will have no GW-posts next month, because I will have another prompt-idea ... haiku-writing techniques . So January will have no GW-posts but instead Haiku writing skills will be on Wednesdays.
