Carpe Diem Sneak Preview November and December 2019 ... never change a winning team
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Our festive 7th birtday month October 2019 is running towards its end, so time to give you a sneak preview for November and December.
As you can read in the "subtitle" of this Sneak Preview it's all about "never change a winning team", but what do I mean with that subtitle? Let me tell you the reason why I have chosen it. In the next two months I love to challenge you with haiku and tanka created by renown haiku (and tanka) poets. First of all, I will bring to you haiku (and tanka) written by the so called "big five", Basho, Buson, Chiyo-Ni, Issa and Shiki, to inspire you, but I will also give you haiku (and tanka) by renown modern haiku poets like Jane Reichhold.
Ofcourse you can think of episodes in which I will challenge you to "revise" or "photo-shop" haiku. I will also challenge you to create Troiku and Renga With ... And I hope to bring you an all new way of haiku-ing based on Shiki's "shasei" way of writing haiku. And (maybe) I will challenge you to create haiku (or tanka) according to several Haiku Writing Techniques.
If you have been a "long time" family-member here at CDHK than you certainly will recognise this image I used for our new CDHK month November 2019, because it was the cover of our first CDHK-magazine.

Well ... I hope to see you all in November too.
