!! I am a bit early with publishing, because of a busy day !!
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Happy New Year to you all. I am looking forward to another year full of gorgeous CDHK prompts and wonderful haiku. You all could have read in our prompt-list for January that all our prompts this month are classical kigo (seasonwords) for New Year (the fifth seasons, according to ancient Japanese history). An all new year lays ahead of us and as we all (maybe) do we have good thoughts and ideas as a new year starts e.g "make more time for the kids and grandkids" or "quitting smoking".
I have no intentions to change something in my life this year. I like my life as it is, maybe the only good intention is that I hope to comment on time here at CDHK and of course I will try to make an even better year of CDHK.

A haiku by Issa:
in good health...
"Happy New Year!"
where did you go
on your journey back to me?
I feel wealthy this New Year
with five sho of old rice
I feel lonely just like
an autumn evening
All beauties I think ... will not be easy to write a haiku (or two) with the same strength, but I have to try:
Or this one:
after the fireworks
the rustling of bare branches
nothing has changed
Awesome ... I like that second haiku very much ... (how immodest), but sometimes I have to give myself a tap on the shoulder (smiles). I hope you did like this post and of course I hope it will inspire you all to write all new haiku and share them with us.
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until January 3rd at noon (CET). Have fun!
