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 ++ !!!

Welcome at this "encore" for this month. I heard that several of you would like to see our special feature "Full Circle" back again here at our Kai. Well ... for this celebration month I have decided to create three (3) "Full Circle" episodes starting with the first today.
Let me first tell you what the challenge "Full Circle" means:
I call it
''Full Circle'' because the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12)
words I will give. It's a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words
given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of
it's place on the clock e.g. rainbow you have to use for line one (1) and
autumn for line two (2) and so on.
I will give
you twelve (12) words (for every ''hour'') one word. The goal is to write haiku
using the words as given in the clockwise way.
Here are the twelve words you have to use as described above:
Well ... I think this is a nice series of words you have to use to create a "full circle" of haiku. That means four (4) new haiku. Let me give you an example of a haiku with the first three words of this "full circle":
I have to use the words: rainbow (1st line), autumn (2nd line) and seagull (3rd line)
a faint rainbow stretches like autumn leaves a seagull's cry
