Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
As you all could read yesterday Jane has provided us with a first episode of "Ask Jane ...", and I hope that you have enjoyed, and especially Hamish Gunn, her article. I am still excited that Jane does this for our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. It's really a honor to have her here at CDHK as a co-host.
As you all know we celebrate our second anniversary this month and during this month we will look back to the past years of CDHK. Today our prompt is fire and I had this prompt in November 2012. I remember that I was still a bit insecure about CDHK. Did I make the right decision to host a daily haiku meme? Will it be a success? Deep inside I always have known that it will be a success and as I look now what CDHK has become ... than I am grateful and proud to be your host. CDHK is alive and kicking and that I have to thank you all for.

Ah! This song brings great memories back to my youth. I was discovering the world and myself. I than wasn't a haiku-poet and I had no idea about what I would become. And ... I had certainly never heard of haiku ... Nowadays as a haiku-poet I cannot understand that haiku came along in 1988 and not earlier ... This little poem from Japanese origin is just an awesome way to say what you feel, an awesome way to be part of the nature that is around us ... haiku is ... a tribute to all nature has to give us, a tribute to us being a part of nature ...
