Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's a joy to create a new post for our wonderful haiku kai, it has to be to long ... As I told you in our post yesterday I have had a very busy time, not only professional, but in private too. As I look back into 2022 ... for us, my family and myself, we hope to forget 2022 very fast. Not everything was sad or bad, but ... not a very good year. Except one thing ... my wife and I became grandparents again, our youngest daughter gave birth to her third child, a boy.
Okay ... back to today. 2023 started with an awesome "bang" ... Fireworks ofcourse (smiling), but we have something to look at in our close future ... I can't wait ... our youngest son hopes to become a father this week ... as everything goes well, he and his girlfriend will be parents next weekend (January 7th). Yes we will become grandparents again.

Back to our post today. As you see at the top of this post ... that's one of my artworks and I challenge you to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form inspired on that Artwork. That Artwork is titled "Loneliness", at least that's the title I have given it for our haiku kai.
