Carpe Diem Special #131, Fuyuko Tomita's "black-iron wind bell"


!! I publish this CD-Special episode early, because I am in the nightshift !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy it was to read all of your responses on our first CD-Special by Fuyuko Tomita and I am proud that she is a fellow Dutchman and a great haiku-poetess. I don't have a lot of her haiku, but there is for sure a haiku which I can share here with you all. In fact this is one of her haiku which were published in a Dutch mindfulness magazine Happinez. As I read that article this haiku caught my attention immediately ... so here it is:

Kurogane no fuurin byakuya o nariyamazu

Black-iron wind bell
in the white summer night
tinkles on and on

And here is my response on this haiku by Fuyuko trying to become close to her spirit ... not easy I think, but ... well I have said that very often and every time I came up with a nice haiku ..., however this time I have looked through my archives.

evening walk
the sound of a wind chime
deep silence

And a cascading haiku from my archives at my base weblog:

in the spring breeze
the wind chime sounds
with every step

with every step
the melody of spring rain
follows me
follows me
the melody of a Buddhist chant
Om Mani Padme Hum

Om Mani Padme Hum
resonates in my heart and soul
in the spring breeze

I hope I have inspired you to write/compose an all new haiku (or tanka) and I am looking forward what your muses will bring you ...
This CD-Special episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until February 10th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our next episode, Tranquility, later on. For now ... have fun, be inspired and share .... have a great weekend.
