Carpe Diem #1251 Bluebells at sunset (by Inguna Plume)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy to create a new episode of CD Imagination for you. I love how this month goes already. All of your beautiful work ... I am so proud to be your host. It makes me humble "who am I to deserve this"... I don't know, but it's almost my second job next to my work as an oncology nurse to host Carpe Diem Haiku Kai ... and I thank you all for the honor you all give me by participating in CDHK.

Thank you
Today I had a very busy day on the unit were we give our chemo ... we had 12 patients and it was really a though day, but we had also wonderful conversations and there was laughter ... Sometimes I feel proud that I can and may be part of the journey of our patients. They are all very strong people and they are all very realistic, but they all go for it ...

Okay ... back to our episode of today, maybe you have already seen the preview of today's image at our CDHK Tumblr, and if not ... no problem ... here it is:

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 13th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new "weekend-meditation" later on. For now ... have fun!


  1. Fascinating new minimalist style. This one you delivered is one of the best haiku I have ever read, if not the bedt. Yhere is everything in those words. I would love to hang this haiku up on the wall of cafe amaking. With Chèvrefeuille and website of course. Extraordinary.

    1. Thanks Hamish ... you make me blush with your kind words. I am experimenting with this new haiku-style, and I must say, the "experimental" haiku is starting to be my favorite way of writing haiku.
      Feel free to use the haiku in your cafe.

    2. humbly breathing
      beauty in his words
      the poet blushes

  2. Thanks Chèvrefeuille - will photograph.

  3. I am agreeing with Hamish, this minimalist haiku is stunning.
