Carpe Diem Special *Autumn “light of the full moon”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a beautiful haiku, written by Chèvrefeuille – our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai host:

* * *
light of the full moon
shines through colored leaves
at last … autumn

* * *

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

* * *
he watches me
nude bathing in the fool moon
a shudder…autumn breeze

Carpe Diem Special *Lolly’s “another anchor thread”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a tanka, written by a very gifted haiku poetess Laura Williams a.k.a. Lolly of Lovely Things:

* * *
sifting through
the personal effects
of a spider’s web
an autumn wind loosens
another anchor thread

* * *

Here’ s what came to my mind after reading hers:

* * *
entangled footprints
fading on the bare shore
summer’ s last haiku

Carpe Diem Special *Fuyuko Tomita’s “actors we all are, she said”*

Our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is a tanka, written by a well-known haiku poetess Fuyuko Tomita:

* * *
Actors we all are, she said
mirrors to reflect
each other
We all leave the stage, she said
and left a smile in mine

* * *

Here’ s my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
piercing silence
among shards of broken plates
the same drama
played all over again
for the last time

* * *
