Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure to present a new trip along memory lane with our special feature "Carpe Diem's Time Machine. This episode takes you back to June 2013. In that month we had all classical kigo (seasonwords) for summer (as we have now in our present time). One of those classical summer kigo was Kawasemi or Kingfisher. This time I will not introduce the episode as I am mostly doing. Why? Well today is a very busy for me, so I have decided to share the episode of June 2013 here again as it was published than.
(June 18th, 2013)
Are you all in for a new nice Carpe Diem episode? Well I am (smiles). Today we share haiku on Kawasemi (Kingfisher). In my opinion it's one of the most colorful water birds. For sure here in The Netherlands. This little Kingfisher is a wonderful fisherman and fast as the wind. I think this wonderful bird can inspire you all to write nice haiku.

Well ... did you like this episode which I published back in 2013? I think so. I hope it will inspire you to write an all new haiku or tanka and share it with us all. I have (of course) given it a try too.
