Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
I love to take you with me on a CDHK journey through time and this time we will travel to spring 2013 especially March 2013. That month we had all classical kigo (seasonwords) for spring and one of them was Tako (Kite) ... and I recall that I composed a haiku with a dragonkite as theme. It was really a nice haiku than, but I don't know if I would compose such a haiku again.
against the blue sky
the devilish dragon kite
just like yesterday
|Credits: Dragon kite|
I have something with kites I think ... so I have tried to write an all new haiku on kite(s):
kites against the blue sky
laughter of children
And I found another nice "kite"-haiku on my personal weblog:
'look up there grandpa'
my grandson points to the sky -
yellow dragon kite
Well ... I hope you did like this journey back in time to the earlier years of our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and I hope it will inspire you to write/compose an all new haiku, tanka, troiku or haibun. Have fun!
This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until March 9th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, raindrops, later on.
