Carpe Diem's Imagination #9, "Japanese Garden"

 


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Another new episode of Carpe Diem's Imagination, the feature in which the goal is to write a haiku/senryu or tanka/kyoka inspired on a given image. The image can be a photo, painting or other kind of picture.
The goal is to paint with words, or in other words, in your poem you have to read something which can be found in the picture or associated on something on the picture or the whole picture.

As you can see ... I have made a new logo for this feature ... Hope you all do like it. Well ... let's go do it ... let flow your imagination ... be inspired by the picture hereafter.


 
 
A gorgeous Japanese Garden ... must be a source of inspiration ... this photo inspired me to write the following haiku:
 
rustling leaves,
the sound of falling water -
profound silence
 
profound silence
as I walk through my garden
saying my prayers
 
saying my prayers
while walking through the garden -
song of a nightingale
 
song of a nightingale
mingles with the sounds of the garden
in praise of Mother Earth
 
Well ... what do you think about these haiku? Now it's your turn. Have fun be inspired and share your haiku imagination with us all here at our Haiku Kai.
This Imagination-episode will stay on until November 24th 11.59 AM (CET) and is now open for your submissions.
