What a joy to bring our first CD-Special of this month. As you all (maybe) know the winner of our first kukai "wisteria", Rallentanda, won the opportunity to be our featured haiku poetess this month. And as you can see at the left "A Carpet of Purple" the e-book Rallentanda won for an anthology of her own haiku is available now for download.
For this first CD-Special I have chosen to inspire you all with Rallentanda's winning haiku. As you (maybe) know the goal of the CD-Specials is to write an all new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one given.
fragrant chandeliers drop
a carpet of purple
Wisteria flowers look fragile -
a gust of wind
By the way .... remember that our second kukai "summertime" is running. You can submit your haiku (max three) until June 15th to our emailaddress:
I am looking forward to your "summertime" haiku ...
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 4th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, a new episode of Tokubetsudesu, later on.
