Haiku Shuukan #5 ('18) Blue Moon

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

A new Haiku Shuukan episode to inspire you. This time a short one, but I think a challenging one. Maybe you know today we had a second full moon in January, that means that we had a so called "Blue Moon", but it was not only a Blue Moon, it also was a "Super moon" and a total moon eclipse occurred also ... sciebntists have called this event "trifecta". It's a very rare thing that has occurred.

So the theme for this week is "Blue Moon". And here is an example written by myself:

it's a mystery
today a second full moon occurred
awesome ... Blue Moon

Haiku Shuukan #4 ('18) wonderful life

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Every post at our CDHK-family's weblogs I start with this sentence and I like that ... because all our participants are Haijin (haiku-poets), visitors who like Japanese poetry and than there are those people who just travel by to read. Isn't that a joy. I think this Haiku Shuukan episode speaks for itselves, because ... life at CDHK ... is wonderful.

I like this song "Wonderful Life" and this video is really awesome to watch and to listen at. Let this music video inspire you to create a haiku (or tanka or other form of Japanese poetry) and share it with us all here at Haiku Shuukan, part of the haiku loving family Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Have fun!

This episode of Haiku Shuukan is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until January 22nd at 10:00 PM (CET).

Haiku Shuukan #3 ('18) Cold wind

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of Haiku Shuukan, our weekly haiku-meme, and for this week I have chosen the theme "cold wind" , because here we have a very cold east-wind. It feels very cold, almost -10 degrees Celsius. Well it's winter of course and this cold wind is not a surprise.
