Carpe Diem #1676 Troiku Month (5) the aroma of pine

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode in our wonderful Troiku month. I am so glad to see participants return to CDHK in this Troiku month ... it makes me proud and humble.

Today I have chosen a haiku by one of our haijin from the start of CDHK. I know that he is a great author and a great haiku poet and with this choice I hope to give him a feeling of joy. I have chosen a haiku by Hamish Managua Gunn, also know as pirate. In our CDHK library you can find an exclusive CDHK E-book created by him. The haiku I will use is taken from that E-Book.

A wonderful haiku ... thank you my friend, thank you Hamish that you are a longtime participant here at CDHK.

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 13th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on.


  1. I know you have been busy Chèvrefeuille, but I just wanted to say thank you for these wonderful haiku from which we're drawing inspiration. :) They are delightful, sometimes very challenging, and I'm enjoying this "Troiku" month very much. I hope you have a chance to catch your breath on the weekend.

  2. Nice troiku challenge. Looking forward to more
