Carpe Diem Time Glass #1 re-start

!! This Time Glass episode closes on October 16th 2:00 AM (CET) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Maybe you can remember that we once had a time-challenging feature titled "Time Glass". The goal was to create haiku or tanka inspired on a theme within 24 hours, so a real time challenge. I love to "restart" that feature. Why? Well as you all know several months ago I changed the responding time of our Kai into seven days, a whole week, but (as you all know) haiku is an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. That short time can help you to create your haiku (or tanka) based on that single moment.
I love to improve your haiku (and tanka) writing skills so I think this "Time Glass" feature can help you with that. But ... we are a haiku loving family from all over the world and we live all in different time zones, so I think it's a good thing to extend the (original) 24 hours of the "Time Glass" feature to 36 hours to respond on the theme.
That theme can be a haiku, a tanka, a waka, an image or just a word  And for the "restart" of this feature I have chosen for a haiku and an image to inspire you.

First the image:

lonely flower
And here is the haiku to help you to find your inspiration:

a little verse
lighted a fire in my heart
addicted to love

Well ... a nice time challenge I think. Try to create your haiku or tanka inspired on this "restart" of the Time Glass and share it with us within 36 hours. That means this episode is open for your submissions around 2:00 PM (CET) and it will remain open until October 16th 02:00 AM (CET). Have fun!
