Carpe Diem #485, Oneness

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another day has gone by and I am preparing our next episode, Oneness, for our daily haiku meme here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. It's an every day joy to prepare these posts and I am glad that these can and may inspire you all.

Before I go on with our episode of today I love to tell you first something about the up-coming months (July & August). First July, A few days ago I watched an incredible program on Discovery World, Joanna Lumley's Nile, in which Joanna Lumley explores the longest river on earth. As I watched all those wonderful and incredible beautiful places along the Nile I thought "maybe we can make that same journey along the longest river of the Earth, the Nile, with Carpe Diem Haiku Kai". So I will prepare (i hope) a wonderful prompt-list in July.

Second, I have read wonderful comments about the music of BrunuhVille and in August in think I will have a whole month with music by BrunuhVille for prompts, as we have done earlier, but I haven't yet decided that.

Back to our episode of today. Today our prompt is 'Oneness' and Jane Reichhold gave the following examples for this modern kigo of summer:

the narrow bed
we breath each other
all afternoon

on bare arms
the noon-day sun melted
hot metal sweet
before the summer storm
rises the close smell
of two skins

A nice trio of haiku I think ... three completely different haiku too, but I like them all ... and I hope I can write my own 'Oneness'-haiku in that way ...

I hope you do like this haiku inspired on Oneness ... and I hope it will inspire you all to write your own haiku.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 8th at noon (CET). I will try to post our new episode, Satisfaction, later on today. For now ... have fun!

  1. It is nice to have some quiet amidst the hurry of preparing for summer.
    I have missed being here so will (now that I am recovered ) try to join in regularly.
