Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Thank you all for your kind words, little by little I am feeling better, I have a kind of flu and that makes it impossible to take enough time to create the posts for CDHK.
Today however I have tried to create a nice episode for you inspired on Jane Reichhold's saijiki "A Dictionary of Haiku", today our prompt (modern kigo) is creek and it's a modern kigo from the Summer Terrestrial section.
Here are the haiku by Jane to inspire you:
the fish in me getting
dry creek beds
without a boat
crossing the creek
pine shadow wind

Three wonderful, but extraordinary haiku, but ... well that was Jane, a great poetess with an extraordinary idea about haiku in our modern times.
the creek ripples
water circles grow
Not as strong as I had hoped, but I like the scene.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 23rd at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, wisdom, later on. For now ... have fun!
