Carpe Diem #47, relationship

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

As I have written in several of my haiku during time I am married with kids so I am in a relation. I love my wife and kids. And I have already six (6) grandchildren. I work as an oncology-nurse and so I have colleagues. And of course ... you my dear friends ... in a way you and I have a relationship.
Relationships I cherish and as I am a haiku poet I cherish all my friends here on Carpe Diem. Our new prompt is relationship not an easy prompt I think, but worth a try heh (smiles). I hope to read several wonderful haiku on relationship.
This is mine:

cherish kids
they need to grow up
without suffering

drinking red wine
laying in front of the fireplace
cherish my love

Credits: fireplace

in the hospital
relations grow with patients
and colleagues

this community
haiku poets of all places
share their verses

Hm ... not very strong these haiku set, but I loved writing them and I cherish every piece of it. Hope you liked them.

This prompt will stay on 'till November 19th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new episode of Carpe Diem 'mist' provided by Dulcina of Dulcina's Garden today around 10.00 PM (CET).
Have fun! Be creative and share your haiku my dear friends.


  1. Four lovely haiku about family, friends and patients. Thanks for sharing and including this haijin community in your poetry.

  2. Lovely fireplace. But this challenge was tough.... Especially since I need a picture of my own :-)

  3. I think I'll have to sit this prompt out:

    Some words kill haiku—
    “relationship,” for instance—
    better avoid them.

    Best wishes to all!

  4. Another successful day! :)
