Carpe Diem Time Glass #22, first kiss

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy it was to have a weekend off and I have seen that Jen has done a great job and I hope you all did like her posts ... It was exciting to give my "pen" away for this weekend, but I am glad to have it (the pen) back. Thanks Jen for doing a great job this weekend ... maybe next month again?

It's Sunday again and so it is time for a new Time Glass episode in which you have to respond within 24 hours on a given image and prompt ... this week I ran into a wonderful poster of a Mother Giraffe giving her newborn the first kiss. This poster is made by Ron D'Raine and it is titled "first kiss".

So our Time Glass prompt is "frist kiss" and here is the image to which I was referring above:
The First Kiss - (c) Ron D'Raine
On the unit where I am working in the hospital we have this poster on the wall ... and it's very comforting for all of us and our patients and their loved ones. It's a sweet poster, a nice scene and I think it will and can inspire you to write an all new haiku or tanka within 24 hours.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and it will remain open until February 23th at 7.00 PM (CET) ... just 24 hours to respond. Have fun!


  1. Hope you had a wonderful weekend ~ I love the giraffe poster and the prompt ~ not likely I will get to it as have personal things to take care of first ~

    Happy Week to you,

  2. Thanks so much Kristjaan ---

    A fun weekend -- and it gives me an even *greater* respect for the time, and work, and heart you put into Carpe Diem every single day! :)

    This poster brought back such memories .... a great prompt. :)

    Namaste --
