Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share Japanese poetry forms like haiku and tanka. 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 Extra August 5th 2016 Jane Reichhold passed away
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today very sad news reached me through the mail. Jane Reichhold, one of our honored and loved co-hosts, passed away. I am still in shock. Jane was one of my friends and a renown haiku poetess. She followed Carpe Diem and complimented me with cdhk. She once said that Carpe Diem Haiku Kai was in her eyes the world's best haiku weblog.
As I have read Jane committed suicide. She had fibromyalgia and couldn't live longer with the pain this illness gave her.
I am thinking of a way to honor her here at cdhk ...
I will remember her as one of my closes friends and my muse. I couldn't have created cdhk without her kindness, her knowledge and her intense love for haiku. I am, and will be forever, grateful that she gave me permission to use all her work and the exclusive rights to publish her e-books.
To honor her one of my favorite haiku created by Jane.
stepping down the steep cliff
Jane Reichhold ... we will remember her as the Queen of Haiku.
Rest In Peace Jane
My thoughts and prayers are with Werner, her husband, and her family.
