Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Time flies ... there is already a whole week of this celebration month gone, time to reflect. This first week was really awesome. I have spoken with participants from the first years of CDHK and they will try to "walk in" this month of celebrations and I have got permission to use all the beautiful music of Karunesh. Maybe you can remember that month full of his wonderful spiritual music back in August 2013. This month we will have again a few wonderful compositions created by him. In our prompt-list I have mentioned already which ones that will be, but ... maybe I will change them, because very recently Karunesh has created a few new albums full of beautiful music. We will see.
I have read wonderful responses on the first week's prompts and I even had time to visit you all already. Really I have read wonderful haiku and tanka. I hope you all will be here this upcoming weeks and share your inspired haiku and tanka with us all.
Reflection it's a wonderful natural play as you can see in the above image and that "play" we can use in our haiku in a great way. Here is an example by Becca Givens, one of the first years participants, a great haiku poetess:
Mirror of my soul
Deep shimmering golden pond
Reflects Divine Love

Or what do you think of this one by Sara McNulty of Purple Pen in Portland, one of our all time participants:
Autumn leaves mirrored
In clear lake their colors float
Soon lake fills with fall
swaying through the pool
frog jumps in
