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 Time Glass #23, Bamboo
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's Sunday again and that means ... time for another time challenging Tima Glass episode in which I challenge you all to write a haiku (or tanka) inspired on a given prompt and image within 24 hours.
This week, because of our Haiga Festival, I have chosen to challenge you with the following prompt "BAMBOO" and with a haiga which I have made a while ago (December 2013). By the way the haiku used in this haiga is far older than the haiga ... the haiku is a translation of a (Dutch) haiku which I wrote somewhere in the nineties..
So .... this Time Glass episode has the prompt BAMBOO and you have to/may use the haiga for your inspiration.
Share your inspired haiku (or tanka, or haiga) within 24 hours with us all here at our Haiku Kai. This Time Glass episode starts tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will end on Monday March 2nd at 7.00 PM (CET). So you have just 24 hours to respond. Not an easy task, but it can train you in catching the moment, the impression, as long as a heartbeat.

a bit of night time scurrying through the garden to find the ingredients for this evening's photograph :-)ReplyDelete
All part of the fun and immediacy of the haiga.
This one was challenging!ReplyDelete
I am having a poetry challenge and there is one week left. I was wondering if you would announce it to the Carpe Diem poets.ReplyDelete
Bamboo has such a haiku feel to it. I recognise your classic!ReplyDelete
