Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share Japanese poetry forms like haiku and tanka. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. ++ ALL WORKS PUBLISHED ARE COPYRIGHTED AND THE RIGHTS BELONG TO THE AUTHORS ++ !!!

Carpe Diem #82, Withered Mums (karogiku)
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another day in Carpe Diem's Paradise. Today our prompt is 'Withered Mums (karogiku)'. Chrysanthemums are also a kigo for late winter. In our first month of Carpe Diem we also had Chrysanthemums for prompt, because Chrysanthemums are kigo for Autumn and Winter.
Have fun and enjoy your new Carpe Diem episode. Be inspired and creative and share your haiku with us.
