Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Come on ... ! Let us go on along memory lane ... today we have arrived at September 2013. That month we had all classical kigo for autumn and the specials were by Mabson O Southard. It was really a challenging month than and I enjoyed all those wonderful responses.
The episode which is in the reprise today is Amanogawa (The Milky Way) and I recall that I wrote about the Mayan Mythology and their ideas about The Milky Way. You can find that episode HERE.
|Logo Carpe Diem Haiku Kai September 2013|
For today's episode I have found a few haiku written by haiku-poets (both classical and non-classical) with The Milky Way as theme.
For example this one by Basho (a very well known haiku):
ura umi ya sado ni yokotau ama no gawa
across to Sado stretches
the Milky Way
beneath the Milky Way an evening soft with moths
the Milky Way too
has become intense
we said and parted
|Credits: Milky Way|
Or this one written by your host:
lighted by thousands of stars -
Or another one also composed by me:
of the Milky Way
looking like pearls
Well ... all wonderful haiku I think and I hope that it will inspire you to write a haiku yourself with The Milky Way in the lead ...
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until October 20th at noon (CET). I will try to post our new episode, The Lighthouse of Alexandria (October 2013), later on.
