Chèvrefeuille's Gift #1 full circle "new life"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I had some spare time and so I decided to start our 5th anniversary, our first luster, already this weekend. I have created a new special feature with the "very" long title "Chèvrefeuille's Gift to You to Celebrate our First Luster of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai". So this is a gift to all of you. It's my way to thank you all for participating in Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. Without you all, my dear Haijin, visitors and travelers, I couldn't make this website such a success as it has become.
Five years ago I started with Carpe Diem Haiku and as I started it I couldn't have dreamed that it would be here after almost five years. We have accomplished that together and I am grateful for that.

In this new special feature I will treat you with episodes of our Special Features. So this time I have chosen to bring a new episode of our Full Circle feature in which the goal is to use twelve (12) words to create four (4) haiku. These haiku you have to create following the numbers 1 to 12, for example ... for your first haiku you have to use word 1 to 3 in the given order.

1. snow
2. blossom
3. beauty
4. sunflower
5. beach
6. waves
7. clouds
8. horse
9. meadow
10. poplar
11. leaves
12. rain

With these 12 words in this given order you have to create four (4) haiku. Let me give you an example of a haiku in which I use the first three words:

the last snow
covers up young blossoms
fragile beauty

Well ... this was my gift to you this time. I hope you will enjoy the gift and the challenge to create four haiku using the given words in their respective order.

You can submit your response right now and until next Saturday April 22nd at noon (CET). Have fun!
