Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
First I will wish you all a Merry Christmas. Second I am proud ... I have read wonderful haiku on the Special by Buson ... makes me even a little bit jealous, because I couldn't write a haiku inspired on the one I gave by Buson, well ... no that's not true, sometimes lack of inspiration can be a pain in the ass.
Maybe later on this year or in the New Year that I find the inspiration to write a haiku inspired on the 'Millionaire' by Buson.
Today is Christmas day and our new prompt for Carpe Diem is 'frost'(shimo). As I 'tried' to write this post I thought about that lovely Christmas song 'Frosty the Snowman'
I had to share this lovely song ... sorry ...
Well back to the purpose of this post writing a haiku on 'frost'. What is 'frost'?
asa shimo ni ushio o chirasu miyai kana
morning frost melts
in the floodtide...
Or this one by Buson, our haiku master for this month:
asatsuyuya mada shimo shiranu kamino ochi
Though by frost untouched
A hair fell.
a frosty daybreak.
this late winter day -
longing for Spring
the Almighty painted
I feel the icy cold of frost -
my heart still warm
That's it my dear friends. During Christmas I haven't time to post our new episode of Carpe Diem. So I will post two new episodes on December 27th around 11.59 AM (CET). So you all can have a rest for writing and composing haiku.
Have fun with this post and have a wonderful Christmas.
