Carpe Diem #1546 Abstract Autumn

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Our Carpe Diem Autumn Retreat has ended. So I thought to choose a nice abstract piece of art, but this time the theme is "abstract autumn". What is abstract autumn? Well ... a painting in which you cannot see its trees or something, but through the colors you know immediately that the painting has to do with autumn. In the modern painting "abstract autumn" you cannot see trees or bushes, but you can see the colors of autumn, red, yellow, orange, brown and all kinds of little differences in those colors ... the colors are autumn and it gives you the opportunity to go with the flow, to think outside of the box to create your Japanese poetry like haiku or choka.

yellow, red,
orange and deep purple

What do you see if you read this haiku? I think it's an abstract autumn haiku inspired on the painting hereafter.

Try to imagine autumn through this painting. Haiku is an impression ... what's your impression?

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 22nd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now .... have fun, go with the flow, think outside the box and share your impression with us all.
