Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #52 full circle challenge "heaven"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

A new Tokubetsudesu episode for you. This time I love to challenge you to write a "Full Circle" series of haiku. I call it ''Full Circle'' because the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12) words I will give. It's a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of it's place on the clock e.g. heaven you have to use for line one (1) and clouds for line two (2) and so on.

I will give you twelve (12) words (for every ''hour'') one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clock wise way.
1. Heaven
2. Clouds
3. Palm tree
4. Fountain
5. Goddess
6. Desert
7. Jazz cafe
8. Duke Ellington
9. Summer night
10. Honeysuckle
11. Ancient road
12. Hill

If you follow the words clock wise than you can compose four new haiku. This new feature is just for fun and I hope you will as much enjoy it as I did have fun and joy to create it.

For example I have a haiku created with the first three given words: heaven, clouds and palm tree:

blue heaven
clouds gathering
a palm tree

  1. Brief haiku are often very appealing - nice one there.
