Carpe Diem Seven Days Before Christmas 2015 #1 fresh snow

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

As promised ... we will countdown to Christmas from today on. In my opinion Christmas starts with Christmas Eve, so that's why this special feature starts today. In the upcoming days we will "grow" to Christmas with each other by special prompts which are in a way connected to Christmas as for example "fresh snow" as is the prompt for this episode of "Seven Days Before Christmas".

You can share all kinds of Japanese poetry forms for this special feature, but please try to stay to the scene of the prompt.

Here is my haiku for this first episode of CD Seven Days Before Christmas:

fresh fallen snow
creaks beneath my feet -
full snow moon walk

full snow moon walk
through my neighborhood
while snow is falling

that night
I will never forget
full snow moon walk

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until December 19 th 10.00 PM (CET). !!! You have a little bit less time to respond !!!


  1. A lovely prompt, Chev. So peaceful. I am looking forward to a full moon on Christmas.

  2. That fresh creaking snow is always a lovely sound! Nice in the mountains, too. Very nice concept and haiku.
