Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Five years ago I started with Carpe Diem an experiment to inspire the world through daily themes to create haiku. If any one had told me that Carpe Diem would be still alive five years later I would have laughed ... I really hadn't thought to be here alive and kicking.
I am grateful that you, my dear Haijin, have made this all possible. Carpe Diem Haiku Kai has become a great success all thanks to you all. It makes me proud, but more ... it makes me humble. Who am I that I may do this? Who am I to be your host and mentor?
Thank you all for this wonderful journey and I hope you all will continue to go with me on this journey. This month we celebrate our first luster, our fifth anniversary, and I think we will have a beautiful festive month. I have chosen for beautiful music and themes / prompts from our rich history here at CDHK. So this month will be a trip along memory-lane, except the musical prompts those are all new and I am happy that I had the opportunity to share this music with you all.
This month we will have no weekend-meditations, but the weekends will be for the music. This Sunday our first musical prompt is titled "borealis" and is composed by a young composer Peter Crowley. He has composed wonderful music and for sure it's worth to visit and listen to his music on his You Tube Channel.
Listen to his music. It's really awesome and I hope it will be a source of inspiration for you.
Because of lack of time, I am on the nightshift, I have chosen a tanka from my archives inspired on Borealis.
