Carpe Diem #1800 New Beginnings ... first leaf falling
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I hope all have had a wonderful weekend and that you all are capable to do a new week here at CDHK. This month is themed "New Beginnings" and today I have chosen a nice prompt for you to work with.
Today I love to challenge you to create Japanese poetry themed "first leaf falling", autumn is in my opinion one of the most beautiful seasons and it's, according to classical sources of Japan, the best season to see the moon and praise her beauty. Autumn ... gives me always the feeling of departure and letting go ... Leaves are coloring and finally fall ...
light of the full moon
silverly beautiful ... so fragile
leaves are falling
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until January 26th at noon (CET). Have fun!
