Carpe Diem #1544 autumn lamplight (aki no hi)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Autumn ... in my opinion, the most beautiful season and today I love to challenge you to create haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form with the given classical kigo, autumn lamplight (aki no hi). Here is an example:

And now it's up to you to create your haiku or tanka themed "autumn lamplight".

Autumn Lamplight
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 20th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on.


  1. Well it has been an eventful few weeks for you mate, to say the least, and yet you still pulled out all stops to produce a great post, with haiku, day after day.
    I see that the little blue frog linking got very slow recently with the new step with advert. Bit frustrating and unmotivating. Wonder if it is worth looking at another linking way? Eg http://www.blenza.com/linkies/ for example. Just an idea.

    1. Yes I noticed that "linkup" uses adverts. I am thinking about changing the linking widget, but blenza? I don't know. The linking widgets of Blenza have no stop time as far as I know. And I love to have an end date for my prompts. But I will give it a thought. Thank you my friend.

  2. Thank you for the prompt, and thank you Merril and Janice for guiding me here.
