Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's with a kind of sadness that I publish our last CD-Special for this month. Dolores, our winner of the "prayers' - kukai, is a very gifted poetess and I have already the content for her exclusive CDHK e-book which I have titled "First Magnolia Bloom". Her E-book is almost ready and than I will prepare it for downloading here at CDHK.
Dolores, as I discovered recently, has a wonderful haibun-blog om Medium and therefore I love to share a haibun written by her and extracted from her Medium blog "Haibun Journey - View From My Window". It's a nice haibun and it fits our regular prompt "stars" in a great way. Enjoy the read.

A wonderful haibun ... and now it is up to you to create haiku, tanka or a haibun inspired on this beauty by Dolores. Have fun!
Here is a haibun from my archives, titled "autumn moon"
days become shorter -
the full moon
The above haiku expresses my feelings in the fall. It is now September and fall will soon come. Each season has its charm, but my heart beats more rapidly as autumn approaches. Autumn, the season of renunciation. Saying goodbye to summer and get ready for winter. The trees lose their leaves, after they have had all the colors you can imagine.
The days are getting shorter, the weather changes in to rough rains and storms.
Saying goodbye ... surely that is the keyword for fall.
I like the moon in autumn. I can enjoy the sight of the moon, our natural satellite. In autumn the moon is mysterious and can work miracles. That feeling I expressed in the above haiku, but also in many other haiku.
light of the full moon
shines through colored leaves
at last ... autumn
