Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today, during circumstances, I have made it myself easy. I think you all expected an Utabukuro episode, and that's true, but because of circumstances I will not publish an Utabukuro episode. Sorry.
Today I have a nice CD Special for you with a few haiku created by a renown haiku poet, Patricia Donegan (she edited a special anthology about female haiku poets, but she is also a great haiku poetess), maybe you know her.
PS. As always I give credit to the haiku poet/ess,, but I couldn't retrieve an email-address to ask Patricia's permission. I hope she is okay with it.
The goal of the CD-Special is to create an all new haiku trying to catch the same feeling, tone and spirit as the given haiku. Here is my attempt:
the sound of a bell
from a far away place
echoes through the valley
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 29th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, Poplar, later on. Have fun!
