Carpe Diem #322, Buddha (provided by Patricia)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today we share (for the second time) haiku on Buddha (provided by Patricia) as we did earlier in one of our episodes of Carpe Diem's daily haiku meme. Of course it's not the intention to repeat prompts several times, but this prompt Buddha can be for sure a second time, because there are new contributors and of course Buddhism is part of haiku.

In our first month with musical prompts by Karunesh I shared a music-video by Guy Sweens, and I love to share that video again here, because it shows us the life of the Buddha, once known as Siddhartha Gauthama (an Indian prince).

Ah! Wonderful ... what a beautiful piece of music by Guy Sweens (a Dutch New Age Musician) I am proud that Guy is a fellow Dutchmen and I love his music very much.

Buddha shows his compassion -
rustling leaves

A strong haiku I think, but that's not up to me to decide. This episode is a short one, but ... well ... there is more to come and to read here at our Haiku Kai.
Be inspired and share your haiku on Buddha with us all, with your haiku family, here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

This prompt will stay on 'til October 15th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next episode, a new Special by Garry Gay, our featured haiku poet of this month, later on today around 7.00 PM (CET).
!! Buddha is open for your submissions at 7.00 PM (CET) !!


  1. I continue to appreciate very much your inspiring prompts..... I just want to keep writing.... thatks and do feel proud.....being a good teacher is a blessing.....

  2. Compassion is the key to the abundant life. Thank you for the abundance that you attract to this site, Kristjaan. I now have a new laptop, and am ready to haiku! ;)
