Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a wonderful Carpe Diem month we have this month. I have read such fine haiku, well penned and composed ... really it's a joy to make this daily haiku meme for you all. And it's even a bigger joy to see that our little haiku community is growing step by step.
Today we share haiku on Tsukushi (horsetail) it's a fragile kind of grass and it can grow very big. It looks like a christmastree, same shape, same color, but without all the lights and ornaments.
In my country (The Netherlands) we have also a weed called 'paardestaart'(Dutch for horsetail) it's a kind of orchid that looks like a horse's tail.
It's really a wonderful kind of weed. So let's go do some haiku composing on this prompt, that will not be easy, but ... well it's fun ...
floating with the stream
christmastree without lights and ornaments
along the country road
a row of horsetail
Not very strong these haiku, but that second one (how immodest) has become a wonderful haiku, as I may say so.
Well .... have fun, be inspired and share your haiku with us all here on Carpe Diem's daily haiku meme.
This prompt will stay on 'till March 21th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our first episode with late-spring kigo (seasonswords), Higan (Spring equinox), later on today around 10.00 PM (CET).
