Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at the second episode of this month of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month I gave the "title" "The Power of Words" and that title refers to the prompts I have chosen to use this month. Maybe you remember our Carpe Diem special feature "Use That Quote", in which I challenged you to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form inspired on the words (quotes) of known and unknown people. Yesterday I shared a quote by Gandhi to inspire you and today I have a nice quote by Hans Christian Andersen, the renown writer of fairy-tales and (as you maybe know) one of his fairy tales was about the "Little Mermaid".
|Hans Christian Andersen (1805-1875)|
Here is the quote by Hans Christian Andersen to inspire you:
fragile morning glory awakens
dew drops glisten
