Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share Japanese poetry forms like haiku and tanka. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. ++ ALL WORKS PUBLISHED ARE COPYRIGHTED AND THE RIGHTS BELONG TO THE AUTHORS ++ !!!

Carpe Diem #697, Weeping Willow
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I am a bit late with posting this episode, but here it is ... our new (and last of this month) episode. Next month we will explore the Bhagavad Gita and the wonderful haiku by Kala Ramesh, our featured haiku-poet of April.
This last episode is Weeping Willow and this time I have taken the easy way and have a short episode for you all ... just my haiga for your inspiration and nothing more.
Well ... this is it ... this was our Carpe Diem Haiga Festival. I hope you all did like the extra challenge to make a haiga and become more artistic and creative with images and words.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until April 3rd at noon (CET). I will try to post our next episode, a Ghost Writer post, later on.

Somehow a nice suitable prompt for an ending of the haiha festival. Thanks again. I hope one or two colleagues are going to comment a little here next month - is common courtesy and we do get a lot....ReplyDelete
Well that is a beautiful haiga Mr Chevrefeuille.ReplyDelete
I went looking for the weeping willow a few weeks ago - I found downed trees instead.ReplyDelete
A nice set of prompts for March. I am sorry I didn't create haiga with you all but although I've created some with moderate "success" haiga isn't really my cup of tea. I can't seem to find a style of haiga that suits me. I am more of a writer than a visual artist.ReplyDelete
Anyway, I look forward, as always to a new month with new and exciting prompts and creative challenges. I am hoping that the tanka website will be revived soon. Hint, hint, hint, Chevrefuille.
As always, thanks for all you do to keep us poets busy and challenged. XXOO
I hope to revive the Tanka website next week, than I have a week off from work. So be patient ....Delete
Ah, I see a fresh prompt. That was the fast week ever! :) Thank you, thank you, thank you.Delete
PS. And thank you for the soliloquy no renga. They're my favorite.Delete
