!! Sorry for being late !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at our first CD-Special for this month. As you all know our featured haiku poetess is Sara McNulty of Purple Pen In Portland. Sara was the winner of the "time"-kukai. With being the winner she won the opportunity to be our featured haiku poetess.

I love to share the following haiku created by Sara:

hot night
chorus outside my window
tree frog serenade

Sara is an awesome haiku poetess with (in my opinion) a very nice and personal style of writing. In our 2nd CD-Special of this month I will tell you all something more about Sara.

As you all know the goal of the CD-Specials is to create / compose an all new haiku (or tanka) inspired on the given one and trying to touch the spirit of the haiku poet.

Shoson 1877 - 1945, " Skylark in Flight above Blossoming Peach"

Here is my attempt:

in touch with the gods
pine trees reaching for heaven -
skylarks sing their song

I couldn't come up with a new one so I ran through my archives.

This CD-Special is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until April 12th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, blossom, later on. For now .... have fun!


  1. Many congratulations Sara for winning the time kukai, I missed the announcement, so I'm late doing so but I'm certainly looking forward to reading your published collection of haiku! Bastet

  2. Yes, congratulations again Sara, and that is a beautiful haiku. Chev your pine tree haiku speaks my language! I certainly feel a connection with pine trees and spirituality.
