Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms such as choka and kikobun. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. ++ ALL WORKS PUBLISHED ARE COPYRIGHTED AND THE RIGHTS BELONG TO THE AUTHORS ++ !!!

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge Month May 31st: a haiku by Basho "the flowers of the tide"
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's with a bit of sadness that I present to you our last episode of our Tan Renga Challenge (TRC) Month. It was really a joy to make this month and you all have written wonderful completions. Thank you for participating in this TRC month.
For our last episode I have a nice "hokku" by Basho. We started with him and we end with him ... By the way Basho was a great renga master so this month was also a tribute to him ... and you all were great.
I hope to create an e-book about this beautiful and challenging TRC month very soon.
Next month we will go on a so called ginko, a journey, through Europe. I hope to see you again.
Okay back to our "hokku" for today:
do not doubt it,
the bay has its spring too,
the flowers of the tide
A nice "hokku" to start this Tan Renga with I would say ...
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 4th at noon (CET). I will post our first episode of our new CDHK month, a Tokubetsudesu episode, later on. For now ... have fun!
