Carpe Diem #248, Inner Beauty

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Sorry guys ... I am very late with publishing this post, this new episode of Carpe Diem. I was at work and I had a very busy evening, so I couldn't prepare our episode for today. Today our prompt is Inner Beauty a nice prompt I think.
No ... big post today just the prompt and my attempt to write a haiku about Inner Beauty.

smiling geisha
hides her beauty behind a fan
and her white face

her white face
the rule for her class of beauty -
no Inner Beauty

This prompt will stay on 'til July 19th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next episode, Compassion, later on (I hope) around 8.00 PM (CET). Have fun be inspired abnd share your haiku with us.


  1. Ah, some days just catch up on us. I'm so happy for the prompt so it's always worth the wait. Love the first of your haiku :-)

  2. I'm sure the Geisha must have some beauty within?

  3. Kristjaan, I love this haiku. Poignant reflection on inner and outer beauty and beauty's connection to culture and time.

  4. I found this prompt easy yet hard...I could think of so many examples of inner beauty, but not the words.
    The haiku I wrote, came to me while half asleep and I'd written it on the notebook beside my bed. Sigh.
