As you all know I have a daily haiku meme weblog at Google’s called ‘Carpe Diem’. On that weblog I give an every day prompt. This month the daily prompts are all Classical Japanese Kigo (seasonwords) and today Oborozuki (hazy moon) is the prompt.
I have already read wonderfully composed haiku on this prompt and I love to share here another haiku written by myself.
cherry blossoms bloom
in the light of the hazy moon
in the twilight light of the hazy moon
blooming cherry trees
Well … what do you think? I love this set … I love that mysterious sight of the cherry blossoms in vague light of the hazy moon, looks somewhat like that the blossoms are hiding behind the veil.
behind the veil
of the midnight light of the hazy moon
hides cherry blossom
See you another day … Namaste …
Dear visitors and friends,
Another post in the series of Carpe Diem, the daily haiku meme by Chèvrefeuille (my Alter Ego). Today it’s February 25th and the moon is full. The full moon of February is called ‘full snow moon’. The name refers to the snow which falls a lot in February. Here in my country (The Netherlands) we have snow, not a lot but it’s snow and as I see the clouds break and the full snow moon peeps through the veil … the world looks magical and mysterious. Really awesome.
through the veil
she, the full snow moon, peeps
at a mysterious world
strong overwhelming feelings
the full snow moon
Awesome … I feel so lucky and blessed that I may write haiku and host Carpe Diem.
Dear followers and friends,
As you may know I am hosting on http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com a daily haiku meme. Every day I give another theme or prompt. Today the 21st Carpe Diem Special is on and that is a haiku written by Chiyo-Ni, a female haiku master, who lived in the 18th century. This haiku is:
harusame ya utsukushiu naru mono bakari
everything just grows
It’s a wonderful haiku in it’s choice of words, but also in the simplicity of the image, a real Chiyo-Ni.
I love to share the haiku which I wrote inspired on the one by Chiyo-Ni.
in the early morning light -
a crystalline world
Well … what do you think? Is this one in the same tone and Spirit as the one by Chiyo-Ni?
Good Day visitors,
As you may know I am hosting a daily haiku meme on http://chevrefeuillescarpediem.blogspot.com And today the prompt to write about is Hill. This prompt is provided by Dulcina of Dulcina’s Garden, another haiku poet.
running up that hill
finally on the top of it
Ah! what a view
life is a hill
sometimes easy, sometimes tough,
but worth climbing
Well … I hope you have enjoyed the read. And if you are a haiku poet yourself … please visit my weblog and maybe you can and will share your creativity with us. You’re welcome to visit and share.
By the way: HAPPY NEW YEAR.
CARPE DIEM, SEIZE THE DAY, a daily haiku meme
Today the prompt for Carpe Diem, Seize the day is Thunderstorm. So let’s go do some haiku composing.
dark clouds growing
above the colorful horizon
heavy rains and thunder
scourge the Earth
thunderstorm on the run
waves as big as skyscrapers
scourge the beach
the power of Mother Nature
what a delight
Well .. that was our prompt for today. If you like to write haiku every day? Visit: Carpe Diem, seize the day, a haiku meme
This week’s prompt for Tackle It Tuesday is ‘morning dew’. A nice theme I think certainly in this time of the year … Autumn. Early mornings when the is rising dew sprinkled on cobwebs. Awesome to see those fragile cobwebs shimmering with dew … when I see that I feel rich … al those chains of diamonds … really amazing.
hanging over the wooden fence
dew on the cobweb
dew on the cobweb
diamonds for the spider -
ah! what a richness
Awesome isn’t it?
