Note of Surprise #haiku #photography

This week at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, Kristjaan is again challenging our writing with another Haiku lesson:

“Maybe this episode had to be our first Haiku Writing Techniques episode, because this week it’s all about one of the basic writing techniques of haiku, the surprise, that one moment as long as the sound of a pebble thrown into water. That moment we have to catch in three lines, three lines which have to tell the whole story of that one moment, that surprise. That one moment is the essence of haiku. It’s an impression caught in three lines and (mostly) seventeen syllables.”

ripples of music

rapture’s crescendo

one tear of understanding

momentary captive

Please enjoy the creative work by fellow haiku poets at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Dewy lashes

open to the sky

watery feathers

Dewy lashes                                                                                     close to the sun

close to the sun                                                                             no heat to borrow

lips greet the moon                                                                             last of day

(central haiku)

 

lips greet the moon

lovers reunite

silent song

 

Today  Carpe Diem Haiku Kai  is inspired by Sogi’s Dewy Eve, we are prompted to write a haiku or better yet a troiku (three haiku built off a main haiku) the form created by Kristjaan.

Plop… #friendship #haiku

 

autumn ripples

walk river edges

 circles ripple and collide

full of skipping stones

 

This haiku the theme River Stones is dedicated to each of the fantastic people (friends) at Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem.

This Haiku is full of symbols: River edges = life, ripple = friendship, skipping stones=haiku

Thanks to Kristjaan Panneman for creating an environment full of warm ripples and skipping stones.
