Carpe Diem's Autumn Retreat 2018 Love Eternally

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Autumn has started so it's time for our seasonly Retreat, a period of 30 days to write haiku or tanka every day on a specific theme. This tradition is really awesome and it needs "focusing" because all the haiku and tanka created during the Retreat have somewhat to do with the theme given.

For this Autumn Retreat 2018 I have chosen the theme "Love Eternally" and I think it speaks for it self. As you all (maybe) know Tanka is known as the "love poem", but I think (and I have said that often here at CDHK) that Haiku can be a love poem too. So for this Autumn Retreat 2018 I challenge you to create haiku (and tanka) on love eternally.

I hope you all like this theme and I hope you will have a wonderful Autumn Retreat this year. You can submit haiku and tanka inspired on the theme. Please give your submitted poems a number.
