Carpe Diem Extra September 26th 2018 Pre-Announcement of CDHK's Autumn Retreat 2018
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Autumn has started so it's almost time for our seasonly Retreat, a period of 30 days to write haiku or tanka every day on a specific theme. This tradition is really awesome and it needs "focusing" because all the haiku and tanka created during the Retreat have somewhat to do with the theme given.
For this Autumn Retreat 2018 I have chosen the theme "Love Eternally" and I think it speaks for it self. As you all (maybe) know Tanka is known as the "love poem", but I think (and I have said that often here at CDHK) that Haiku can be a love poem too. So for this Autumn Retreat 2018 I challenge you to create haiku (and tanka) on love eternally.
Our Autumn Retreat 2018 starts on October 15th at 10:00 PM (CEST) and will close on November 15th 10:00 PM (CET). So are you with me again this seasonly Carpe Diem Autumn Retreat?
Chèvrefeuille, your host
