Carpe Diem #31, wedding bells

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I am a bit sad. Today is our last Carpe Diem October prompt wedding bells. But I am glad too that I have started Carpe Diem. It was an adventure and it still is. I have published the prompts for November and I hope to see you all again sharing your wonderful haiku with Carpe Diem.
The first prompt for Carpe Diem November is all souls night/halloween and I am looking forward to your haiku on that prompt, but first ... back to today's prompt wedding bells.
When I married there were no wedding bells, because the chapel where my wife and I married had no wedding bells, but nevertheless it was a great day (almost 22 years ago) and I am still happily married and in love.

through the mist
the sound of wedding bells
of far away

wedding bells sound
through the autumn haze
early this morning

early this morning
the sound of church bells
through the mist

Not a very strong series, but well ... it was a joy to write these haiku. I will thank you all for the pleasure you have given me as your host for Carpe Diem.

This prompt will stay on 'till November 1st 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post the first prompt for our new month of Carpe Diem today around 10.00 PM (CET)


  1. Actually for the 'prompt' word you have developed 3 wonderful haiku that are somewhat reflective yet descriptive and can hear the 'bells' ~ (A Creative Harbor)

    1. Thank you Carol for your kind words. This prompt brings sweet memories to me. First my own wedding, second ... when I started my first weblog one of the first haiku I published was on 'church bells' and one of those haiku was on 'wedding bells'. Thank you for participating.

  2. I love that distant sound of your wedding bells through the mist.
