Carpe Diem #561, Harvested Fields

Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,

Autumn ... time for harvesting and bring in the supplies for winter. In autumn farmers are harvesting their fields to supply their selves and us with food ... Harvesting time is as old as humanity is. And it is still what we do today.
For today our prompt is Harvested Fields and it points directly to that common way of living. Jane provides us with the following example(s):

autumn blooms
soft white cotton balls
a harvest field

brown harvest field
the balls of white cotton
polka dots

It's a great time .... harvesting ... and I hope it will inspire you to write haiku.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until September 16th at noon. I will publish our next episode, hot springs, later on.


  1. Love the overcoming winter aspect.

  2. That's an interesting idea, overcoming winter. Interesting also the very different style here between your haiku, more like a Dutch or Flemish masters painting, and Jame's haiku.

  3. Some organic harvests do better than others...
    This morning was the first time it the temp reached below 50 F or 10 C - a chill is in the air.
