Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
A few weeks ago I started this special feature to celebrate our upcoming first luster. In this special feature I give you a challenge built from the special features which we have had here at our Haiku Kai.
This time I have chosen to create a "special" episode of our "Carpe Diem Use That Quote" feature in which the goal is to create haiku, tanka or another Japanese poetry form inspired on a quote.
For this special festive feature I have chosen a quote by (my master) Matsuo Basho, one of the "big-five" haiku poets of all times.
|Basho tree (banana plant)|
Here is the quote for your inspiration:
“There is nothing you can see that is not a Bashoflower; there is nothing you can think that is not the moon”. Matsuo Basho
And here is my response on this quote:
hidden in the mist
fields of thousand tulips
waiting for the sun
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until May 6th 10.00 PM (CET). Have fun!
