Well ... here it is the first CARPE DIEM SPECIAL as you can see I have used another logo especially for this special prompt. I will give you here the haiku which is your inspiration source for today's Carpe Diem Special (see for more on this special prompt here) it's a haiku written by Matsuo Basho (1644-1694) a haiku master.
Basho is a well known haiku master and even non haiku writers can tell you that Basho is a haiku poet and they even can tell you about Basho's 'frog's jump in' haiku. You can read more on Basho and his haiku on my Basho Revisited Weblog
This haiku he wrote in the Autumn of 1677:
breaking off the scarlet papers
