Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a (re) new feature here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In this feature I will look back in time and sometimes into the future ...
Recently the Autumn Retreat closed and I am so happy that this retreat was another wonderful success, of course I had loved to be creating more haiku myself for the retreat, but ... well time isn't always on my side ... and my muse has vacation too sometimes ...
I have read really wonderful haiku, tanka, troiku and troibun (troika + prose) and I enjoyed reading them. I realize that I haven't read the last say 20 entries, but for sure I will do that soon.

As you maybe remember several months ago I started "Wandering Spirit", the story of Yozakura, the unknown haiku poet. I will publish a new episode of this story later this week and I hope you all will like it again.
Next month, making the future, to look back at later this year (smiles), we will have a whole month of Imagination or images for your inspiration. I am busy to gather the images and the backgrounds towards them. So I hope to publish our new prompt-list next weekend.
As I look back into time than I see a structure of waves in our visitors numbers and that makes me happy. Earlier this year we reached our one million milestone and I really hadn't thought that I could do it ... with the beauty of haiku.
In the years of CDHK I used very often novels by Paulo Coelho to create our prompt-list and I think those months were exciting ... so I will do that again.
Of course there is our upcoming anniversary month October and I hope I can inspire you all and amaze you all ... because I think this anniversary month will be one festive month in which I will take the Tardis (Dr. Who) to visit several places to which I have sweet memories ... five year CDHK I didn't thought that could be happening .... and now ...
Chèvrefeuille, your host.
