Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at the last episode of our tribute to Jane month. With this last episode I conclude the last modern kigo of winter extracted from Jane's "A Dictionary of Haiku". It was a real joy to create this tribute month and I hope you all have that same feeling. Of course Jane will be part of CDHK forever and not only in spirit, but also in a new weekly special feature "Universal Jane" which I will launch next month as we celebrate our 4th anniversary. You can find our celebration prompt-list above in the menu.
Today leafless trees is our prompt and I think that needs no further explanation, because leafless trees we all know ... therefore I will share the haiku by Jane to inspire you immediately hereafter.
from the wind
the flute lesson
of a bare tree
shaping the radiant bodies
of trees in winter
in the clearing
hovering a circle of trees

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until October 4th at noon (CET). I will (try to) post our new episode, the first of our celebration month, later on. Have fun!
