Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Another CD Special is ahead of us. Jim has written wonderful haiku and it isn't easy to choose from his oeuvre, but I think I have found a nice haiku for your inspiration. For those who are new here I will give the goal of these Specials. For this CD Specials i choose a haiku written by our featured haiku-poet of the month. This month that is Jim Kacian, co-founder of the World Haiku Association and owner of Red Moon Press (specialized in publishing haiku). The haiku is meant for your inspiration and the goal is to write/compose a new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the given haiku.
Here is our 2nd haiku by Jim Kacian:
the faint yellowness
of the white house
© Jim Kacian
What a beauty. The first thought which came in mind was the painting called 'yellow house' i am not sure but the painting i meant is by Van Gogh or by Gaugain. And the response which i wrote at the start of cdhk in October 2012 about an orange house. I even recall that i used that haiku for one of the first 'troiku' i wrote.
all day sunrise
what a joy to live in
my orange home
Well .... now it's up to you .... write a new haiku inspired on the haiku given by Kacian.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 13th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, truth, later on.
Your haiku made me chuckle - great optimism and joy of life! Thanks for the nice post.ReplyDelete
What a fun phrase 'all day sunrise' - I love it!! - and then to finish it off with 'my orange home' very cool!ReplyDelete
I live in a pink house.. :-) But live in an orange house sounds niceReplyDelete
I'm about to go on the road for a bit, but I wanted to share this link with you -- yes, Van Gogh had the Yellow House. :)ReplyDelete
Pink, orange, yellow -- they all sound so much more cheerful than brick (sigh). A great post, Kristjaan!
