Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy to prepare this new episode of Carpe Diem. Why? Our prompt for today is the reason why Basho became a wellknown haiku-poet called "Basho". It was this Bashoo (Bananaplant) from which he took his penname. It's a lovely story and I love to share that story with you all.
more than ever I hate
I look at the sprouting reeds
of the Bamboo

between the oversized leaves -
a humble haijin
staying for good―
the mimosa blossoms
all June’s rainy days have left untouched the Hall of Light in beauty still ablaze

I hope you all did like this new episode of Carpe Diem. With this one we are closing in to the end of our September month and into the start of our second year of Carpe Diem. I am excited ...
