Carpe Diem #1717 Sunflowers
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our "Field Of Flowers" month. Today I have chosen "sunflower" to work with. I have written several haiku about sunflowers, so I will give you a few examples:
it bowed its head to deep -
departure of summer
in the light of dawn
sunflowers reach to the blue sky
praising their Creator
And a last one from my archives:
torn apart through a rain storm -
puddles on the path
I love Sunflowers, they look like suns and they bring me a lot of joy, just like the sun. I hope you all are inspired to create haiku, tanka or other form of Japanese poetry about sunflowers.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until August 11th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. For now ... have fun!
