Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It feels a bit strange ... and I don't understand it also. What has happened to CDHK? Is haiga something we as a family of haiku poets don't appreciate? During this month I see that the submissions are becoming more and more less than ever. I don't know what is happening, but it will not take away my enthusiasm to create every day posts for you all.
Today I have another nice modern kigo for spring to inspire you all. Today our prompt is fishing and the first thing which came in mind was a haiku by Chiyo-Ni, a follower of Basho.

this summer moon
Really a nice way to bring haiku in the light and under attention of the world. Jessica has created several of these haiku-comics and they all are beauties in my opinion.
Let us take a look at the examples by Jane Reichhold to explain this modern kigo fishing:
the old farmer tells us
how to fish
on the sand
sinking into darkness

And now it is up to you my dear friends.
