Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy to share our first Carpe Diem Special by Alexey Andreyev (1971- ), our featured haiku-poet from Russia. Next to his skills as a poet he has also skills as a painter and as a mathematician. He has a degree in Mathematics. By the way ... I hope you all like our new logo for the Specials.
over the city lights
stars hardly seen
Of course you know what the goal is of these Specials? But I will tell it anyway (smiles), because there are a few new contributors. The goal of these Specials is to write, compose an all new haiku inspired on the one given by our featured poet in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one given. Not an easy task, but it's a challenge to look in another way to the writings of fellow haiku-poets both classic and modern.
|Over the City Lights Stars hardly seen
A wonderful "out of space" photograph from citylights, stars and Aurora Borealis ... a gorgeous photo which inspired me to write the next haiku in response of the one by Alexey Andreyev. I hope it's in the same sense, tone and spirit ...
at the horizon
just outside of the city
the Milky Way
Or this one, more in tune with the photo:
out of space look
city lights completely neglect
Well ... did you like them? Let me know.
