Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy it was to read all your wonderful haiku inspired on our yesterdays prompt 'silk'. I have read a lot of silk-haiku in which romance and sensuality was clearly there. I do wonder ... is this the 'result' of our wonderful community of haiku poets? A community in which we are in a way connected? Feels like a common consciousness ... and that, my friends, is so cool.
Today we share haiku on 'eyes'. Eyes are the mirror of the soul and we use them to look around us and see all the wonders (and sadness) in our world. Haiku poets were 'lookers', they always looked closer to their surroundings and everything they saw they used in their haiku. Haiku is a short moment in time as short as the sound of a pebble thrown in a pond. Haiku ... our common passion ... I love it and I do believe that you all love writing and sharing haiku.
I wasn't inspired today ... so I have used an old haiku on 'eyes':
the eyes of Buddha
like the eyes of my wife
I fell in love
of the people around you
This prompt will stay on 'til January 27th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will share our new prompt later on today around 10.00 PM (CET) that will be 'Wolf Moon' (the full moon of January).
Have fun, be creative and share your haiku with us here on Carpe Diem.
