Carpe Diem Special #152, Rallentanda's fourth "friday flowers"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

As you all know this month all our CD Specials are haiku written by Rallentanda, our first kukai winner. And today we have a new CD Special, it's the fourth by Rallentanda and this haiku she wrote a week ago. I love to share it here for your inspiration:

winter - friday night
faces glow like flowers in
soft lighting at the pub

A beauty I would say. It's a haiku in which a whole story is told. A story of the gathering of people in a warm cozy pub on a winter night. I think you all can imagine the scene Rall has painted with her words and now it's up to you to try to write/compose an all new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one by Rall.

Here is my attempt to write/compose an all new haiku inspired on the one by Rall:

warm summer night
drinking together with friends
perfume of Honeysuckle

This CD Special is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until June 22nd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, long day (summer solstice), later on. For now .... have fun, be inspired and share your inspired haiku with us all.


  1. Thank you for choosing this one , Kristjaan. One of my favourites. I have submitted it as a link because a poem precedes it. I'm not sure if this is officially a haiga because I think you must use prose before the haiku instead of a poem ...but I'm one for bending the rules a tad:) Looking forward to reading what the group has come up with.

  2. Opie and Tinker...cannot comment on your blogs.

    Opie...nice touch of romanticism with the ring box.

    Tinker ( chuckles)...have never seen a photo like this on a poetry still
