|Credits: logo CD-Special December 2015|
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's my pleasure and with pride that I welcome you at the first Carpe Diem Special of December. This month's featured haiku-poetess (and winner of our "peace of mind" - kukai) Georgia (a.k.a. Bastet) of Bastet and Sekhmets Library
Georgia won our "peace of mind" kukai with the following haiku:
off the old bamboo wind-chimes
|Credits: autumn reflections|
geese fly south
old man contemplates winter
under the hot sun
ducks laugh downstream
– diving for trout
the noisy swallows have gone
but the blackbird sings
And the challenge, as you all know, for the CD-specials is to write an all new haiku, tanka or in this specific episode, a troiku, inspired on the given one trying to touch the same sense, tone and spirit. I am looking forward to all of your responses.
This CD-Special is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until December 7th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, men of this world; picking up rice seedlings; backpack and sword, later on.
