Carpe Diem #1257 Wisteria Blues (Jonathan Reid)

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode in our "Imagination Without Limits". Today I have a beautiful image to inspire you. It was found on the Tumblr BonitaVista (which means beautiful vistas) and, after a long search on the Internet, I found the photographer who made this beautiful photo at the "Lake Como in Italy", it is titled "Wisteria Blues" (instead of "Wisteria Blossoms", as I had called it). This beautiful photo is made by Jonathan Reid and I hope it will inspire you.

Take your time to connect with the scene, Lake Como Italy, and create your haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form.

Look at the Wisteria blossom. Do you see how magical it looks around those lighted windows? And the lake ... seems like a mirror. And all those differences of blue ...

By the way this "experimental haiku" brought another haiku in mind which I once wrote several years ago:

what a party
writing a renga together -
waterfall of flowers

Well ... I hope you can find your inspiration, awaken your muse and share your Japanese poetyr inspired on "Wisteria Blues" with us all.

A preview of our new CD Imagination you can find on our CDHK Tumblr.

PS. The owner and host of the Facebook page "My Haiku Pond" (Michael Smeer) asked me to share the following announcement with you all:
