Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku *Richard Wright’s “an autumn evening”*

This time on Carpe Diem Modern Times Haiku we are introduced to haiku, written by a haiku poet Richard Wright (1908-1960):

* * *
no birds are flying;
the tree leaves are still as stone, –
an autumn evening

* * *

I tried not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit, writing mine:

* * *
heavy raindrops
running down the dark window pane
a small yellow leaf

* * *

Carpe Diem Special *Autumn “this harvest moon” by Chiyo-Ni*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a haiku, written by Chiyo-Ni – one of the most known female haiku poets:

* * *
this harvest moon –
as I part the snow by stepping on it
the sound of stones

* * *

This is what came to my mind after reading hers:

* * *
parting droplets of sweat
on our entangled bodies
this harvest moon

* * *
