Carpe Diem Ghost Writer #38, a little bit different ... playing again ...

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

This GW-post will be a little bit different than what I usely publish, because I love to take the opportunity to "play again" with a few prompts from the rich history of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. A few days ago I asked you all for your help and you all shared ideas ... I am going to create an all new feature in which I will "play again" prompts from our CDHK history. This new feature is not completely created, but I loved to share a few of our historical prompts today with you all.

Here are the prompts to "play again" from our CDHK history:

Carpe Diem # 68, Winter Grasses
Carpe Diem # 82, Withered Mums
Carpe Diem # 294, Orchids

You may choose which one you would like to use, of course if you think you can write on all three, feel free to do so ...
This GW-post you can see as the introduction to our new Carpe Diem Haiku Kai feature "Time-machine" in which we will "play again" with prompts from our CDHK history.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until December 19th at noon (CET). I will try to post our next episode, ice-skating, later on. For now ... enjoy the fun and the dive into our CDHK history.


  1. Great prompts from the past! Thank you, Kristjaan.

  2. Problem solved brilliantly.
    Even M.M.R seems happy now :-)
    K.P.'s P.R. triumph

  3. Chev, your verse speaks volumes...

    I jumped in with both feet... and adapted a series. :)
