Haiku Shuukan #34 survival

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

My excuses for not posting last Sunday September 13th, maybe that's also a choice to survive. As you all know I am hosting a daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai which gobbles a lot of my time. So to give this revival of Haiku Shuukan a chance to survive I have decided to make this a two weekly "poetry" meme.

Our prompt for this week is survival and that can mean a lot, but in present time I think this is the most important rule in our world. Look at the refugees from all over the world were the heat is on, for example: the Southern-East European and Asian countries ... they all will survive ...

As I was preparing this episode I thought of "I Will Survive"

Well ... I hope this episode will inspire you to write haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form. Have fun!

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until October 3rd at noon (CET).

Haiku Shuukan # 33 Alone

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of Haiku Shuukan. After almost a year I have decided to revive this weblog and so here is the first prompt of a revived Haiku Shuukan, alone.I love to challenge you all to write a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form inspired on this new prompt alone and I also have a picture to help you to become inspired.

Credits: Alone
And of course I will try to write my own inspired poem, haiku, tanka or another Japanese poetry form. So here is my inspired poem for this episode, alone.

without you
the world will never be the same
alone with my thoughts
I will miss you more and more

Well ... I hope I have inspired you and I hope to see you all very often here again. This episode of Haiku Shuukan is open for your submissions at noon (CET) and will remain open until next Sunday September 13th at noon (CET).
