Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
As we are in the beginning of Spring I love to challenge you with a new Carpe Diem Imagination episode. The goal of this Imagination is to write and compose haiku inspired on a given picture, painting or photo. For this episode of Imagination I have chosen a wonderful photo of the Weeping Cherry.
It's a wonderful tree and I think it can inspire you all to write nice haiku. You also may compose a Tanka or Kyoka or Senryu. Tanka and Kyoka are another Japanese poetry form that has five lines with a syllables count 5-7-5-7-7. Tanka and Haiku are similar to eachother in their meaning as are Kyoka and Senryu. Kyoka and Senryu are mostly more humorful and are about human affairs.
Well .... have fun, be inspired and share your haiku, senryu, tanka or kyoka with Carpe Diem.
This Carpe Diem Imagination will stay on 'till March 31th 11.59 AM (CET).
