Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
In this time of year several things are for the last time, and that's also with our Carpe Diem Special of today. Today we have our fifth Special haiku by Hando and it's the last of this month and of this year. I haven't decided which haiku-poet will deliver our Specials next month, but one thing is for sure, it will be a Russian haiku-poet, because of our Trans Siberian Railway month. So ... you have to wait a little, but I will share haiku that are wonderful and Russian.
Here is our last Special haiku by Hando for your inspiration. Write a new haiku in the same tone, sense and spirit as the one by Hando. Good Luck
caught by the call
of the flowers and mountain, I forget
how steep the path is

And here is my attempt to write a whole new haiku inspired on the one by Hando and (I hope) in the same tone and sense and spirit.
the little child
reaches for the water lillies
without seeing the frog
This episode of Carpe Diem Special will stay open for your submissions until December 29th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new episode later on today around 7.00 PM (CET). That will be Circle of Life. Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku in the spirit of Hando with our haiku/family. This Special episode is OPEN for your SUBMISSIONS tonight at 7.00 PM (CET)
