Carpe Diem #88, Now, Today
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I hope all is well with you all. I am glad to know that you're so nice to back up me during this difficult time around the cardiac surgery of my mom. As it looks now ... my mom will be in surgery next monday 2:00 PM (CET). 'Till now she feels oke and has confidence in the heart surgeons. I will try to post our daily haiku for Carpe Diem, but I can't guarantee that ... I will see how things are going.
Today our prompt is 'Now, Today' a difficult one I think, but maybe that's more my idea because of my mom. Well ... I have to try of course to write my own haiku here as an inspiration for you all, my dear friends.
today is the day
celebrating life as it is
cry of a new born
cry of a new born
accompanied with the song of birds
and blooming cherries
Not a strong pair of haiku ... I hope to read stronger haiku written by you.
This prompt will stay on 'till January 7th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will publish our new prompt 'tomorrow' later on today around 10:00 PM (CET).
Be inspired, be creative and share your haiku with Carpe Diem. And maybe you can post a comment after linking. Thank you all for your love and kindness and your every day effort to write haiku for Carpe Diem.
