Carpe Diem #1018 Temple bell

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of Carpe Diem. This month its all about the power of words ... every prompt is a quote by a known or unknown human. Today I have chosen to inspire you through a quote by my master, Matsuo Basho. And in a way it's also a tribute to Jane Reichhold, because here at CDHK I had the privilege to use her "complete haiku by Basho" several times.

[...] "The temple bell stops but I still hear the sound coming out of the flowers." [...]  Matsuo Basho

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 13th at noon (CET). Have fun!
