Carpe Diem #1559 Vancouver ... renown for the Cherry Blossoms

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new stage, a new episode, in our journey along the Pan American Highway straight through the Americas from north to south. Today I love to "stop" in Vancouver. Maybe you are familiar with the Vancouver Cherry Blossom Festival (VCBF) and if you are familiair with it than you also know that during the VCBF there is a haiku contest. I have had the pleasure to have won a Honorable Mention in this contest. Let me give you the haiku that won a HM:

the cooing of pigeons
between blooming cherry trees -
the cool rain

Vancouver (Cherry Blossom)
Ofcourse you can see the Vancouver Cherry Blossoms at the start of spring, and now it's winter, so you have to wait a while. But I think Vancouver has the most wonderful Cherry Blossoms of the western world.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until December 11th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
