Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai. This month we are celebrating our 8th anniversary with flash-backs into our rich history. Today I have chosen for a theme we have seen a couple of times here at CDHK, sunflowers.
I love sunflowers, they always give me the feeling of a sunny day, even when it rains. Sunflowers are looking like the sun and that makes that I become always happy of having them in my home.
rain patters against the window
the loneliness disappears as by sunlight -
sunflowers reach for the sky
And now ... it's your turn to create a sunflower haiku or tanka (or maybe one of the other Japanese poetry forms).
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until October 17th 10:00 PM (CEST). Enjoy! You can add your submission to the linking widget hidden in our logo below.
