Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today autumn starts and that means it is September 22nd, the autumn equinox. So our prompts this week fit the time of year. Our prompt for today is waterfall and it is extracted from the online version of Jane's "A Dictionary of Haiku" on her personal website.
As I was creating this episode I thought back to the start of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. Why? Because the first prompt ever on CDHK was "waterfall". I even remembered the haiku which I used to inspire you:
waterfall of colors
leaves whirl through the street -
It was also a haiku of autumn, so this cannot be a coincidence, this must be the spirit of Jane.
We have had "waterfall" as prompt several times here at CDHK, so (again) a reprise episode? Well ... to me that's okay and I hope you all don't mind too.
Let me give you the haiku by Jane to inspire you:
into emerald pools
falling with the waterfall
some of them
the shape of water
on black rock light falling
with the water
ah! that sound ...
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 27th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, candles, later on. Have fun!
