Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #24 Black Earth
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at this belated episode of Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor. Yesterday I hadn't time to publish there were some serious circumstances that needed my attention. So my excuses for being late.
This month it is all about tanka as you all know and I have decided to re-create one of my WP weblogs into Tanka Splendor. Our WP weblog formerly known as Haiku Shuukan is now called Tanka Splendor and I will publish there every week a Tanka Challenge for you.
Today here at CDHK I have a bit strange prompt black earth and I think this will be a tough one to create tanka with.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 29th at noon (CET). I will publish our new episode, Teika's 9th Tanka Writing Technique, later on.
