Carpe Diem Special *Jim Kacian’s “harvest dusk”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is another haiku, written by Jim Kacian:

* * *
harvest dusk–
sitting in the wheelbarrow
with the potatoes

* * *
Writing my haiku, I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
potato field-
shining between muddy rows
red rubber boots

* * *
all shapes and sizes
piled up in autumn sun
-potato harvest

* * *
tractor growls
disappear in early dusk
acres of bare field

* * *

Carpe Diem Haiku *Issa ”O cooling melons!”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Kobayashi Issa:

* * *
if anyone comes,
turn into frogs,
o cooling melons!

* * *

The following ones are my attempt not to wander too far away from the mood and spirit of the haiku above:

* * *
trail of cool droplets
rolling down ignited skin
-melon scented ice cubes

* * *
after the storm
bouncing through the flooded field
a watermelon

* * *
