It's a little while ago that I posted here, but ... as you maybe know ... I have a few other weblogs on haiku and those weblogs have my attention because of the daily haiku-meme there. But ... I had to share a post for today's Carpe Diem Special. This month back at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai we have Jack Kerouac as featured haiku-poet for the Specials and today the haiku written by him for inspiration is the following:
early morning gentle rain,
two big bumblebees
humming at their work

What a wonderful music and what a piano-player .... awesome. This music inspired me to write the following haiku (I hope) in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one by Jack Kerouac.
Lavender flowers -
bumblebees collecting honey
in the backyard
Wow! ... Sorry I like this haiku very much ... it's a strong one and I even think it's in the same tone, sense and spirit as the one by Jack Kerouac (how immodest).
I hope you enjoyed the read and the music ... see you again ....
