Carpe Diem Special #190 A trip along memory lane 1st CD Imagination

Dear Haijin,visitors and travelers,

As you (maybe} have read I haven't had time to create the anonymous list of submitted haiku for our 'winter'-kukai. So I haven't a winner yet to be our featured haiku poet/ess this month, but of course I love to make our CD-specials too this month therefore I have another idea to fill the CD-specials ...

As you know during the existence of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai I created several special features e.g. Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge, Carpe Diem Kamishibai and Carpe Diem Soliloquy no Renga.
This month our CD Specials are a trip along memory lane ... I will bring CD special features which we have had.

For this first CD Special of January I love to go back to a special feature that challenged you to write haiku (or tanka) inspired on an image, photo or something alike ... this feature was Carpe Diem Imagination.

I started this special feature at the beginning of 2013, somewhere in January, and it was the start of a wonderful series of special features. I remember that I shared a photo of shooting stars in that first episode of CD Imagination and I think I will do that here again ... so hereafter you find a nice photo of shooting stars fr your inspiration.

Let the photo inspire you to "paint" with words. Have fun!

Credits: Shooting Stars

Maybe you have seen shooting stars, maybe not. In this region of the world we can see on a regular base the Pleiads come over. It's a lovely sight and I enjoy it every time again.
Making a wish when you see a shooting star ... it's a fairy tale, but ... you never know. Think twice before you wish (smiles),

looking at the stars
I feel little and humble
I bow my head

By the way are there CD Special features which you love to see again? Please let me know through the comments field.
