This blog is about haiku. A classical haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables. Chèvrefeuille (the pseudonym of Kristjaan Panneman, a Dutch haiku poet) however writes his haiku in the Kanshicho-style. In the Kanshicho-style the classical syllable count isn't used. Matsuo Basho (1644-1694), a haiku poet, wrote his haiku in Kanshicho-style for several years, but he returned to the classical way of haiku writing. !!! Anonymous comments will be seen as SPAM !!!.

Carpe Diem ... sunny day
I had to write a few new haiku on our prompt for today 'yellow'. I have already read wonderfully composed posts ... so I have to come up with a few good ones (smiles).
one sunny day
my black thoughts
reaches 'till the horizon
what a joyful sight
'look up there grandpa'
my grandson points to the sky -
yellow dragon kite
Well ... I hope you liked it.

Tackle It Tuesday, Wuthering Heights
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
This 'Tackle It Tuesday' will stay on for another week. I haven't had time to write a new episode because of lack of time. So this episode will stay on 'till November 14th.
Another week gone into oblivion and a new week has just begun. Time to release a new episode of Tackle It Tuesday.
This week I saw a TV show about buying a house in the Yorkshire region of Great Brittain. This region is known by e.g. wonderful landscapes, rugged heights and of course the Bronte sisters. The Bronte sisters were great English authors and I think you all know the novel written by Emily Bronte "Wuthering Heights".
A short overview:
In 1801, Mr. Lockwood, a rich man from the south of England, rents Thrushcross Grange in the north of England for peace and recuperation. Soon after his arrival, he visits his landlord, Mr. Heathcliff, who lives in the remote moorland farmhouse called "Wuthering Heights." He finds the inhabitants of Wuthering Heights to be a rather strange group: Mr. Heathcliff appears a gentleman but his mannerisms suggest otherwise; the reserved mistress of the house is in her mid-teens; and a young man appears to be one of the family, although he dresses and talks like a servant.
Being snowed in, Mr. Lockwood stays the night and is shown to an unused chamber, where he finds books and graffiti from a former inhabitant of the farmhouse named Catherine. When he falls asleep, he has a nightmare in which he sees Catherine as a ghost trying to enter through the window. Heathcliff rushes to the room after hearing him yelling in fear. He believes Mr. Lockwood is telling the truth, and inspects the window, opening it in a futile attempt to let Catherine's spirit in from the cold. After nothing eventuates, Heathcliff shows Mr. Lockwood to his own bedroom, and returns to keep guard at the window.As soon as the sun rises, Mr. Lockwood is escorted back to Thrushcross Grange by Heathcliff. There, he asks his housekeeper, Nelly Dean, to tell him the story of the family from the Heights.
Maybe you remember the song written by Kate Bush and sung by her. It was inspired on this great novel by Emily Bronte.
Awesome ... I loved this song (as I once did love all of the music by Kate Bush). I hope you enjoyed the music video and I hope of course that you are inspired to write a haiku (classical or non-classical) on this prompt.
Here is mine:
patches of fog like ghosts
above the heath
patches of fog
crawling up and down the hills
Well enjoy the fun ... be inspired ... and share your haiku with Tackle It Tuesday. Do you like writing haiku? And you would like to do that every day? Visit my daily haiku meme at: Carpe Diem

Haiku Heights, nature
Inspired by the theme at
Time flies ... another week has gone. I heard this was a tough week for several American states because of the big storm 'Sandy'. How come that this kind of storms have such lovely, soft and sweet names as 'Sandy'?
I didn't really follow the news on this big storm, but I heard enough about it to understand that nature (our HH prompt for today) is a very powerful force on our little blue planet Earth.
hits the East American Coast
how strong the power
of Mother Earths energy
strong human race
will rebuild their environment
a new experience
around the mansion
daisies standing strong together
after the storm
Well ... next week another prompt. For now I wish the people who were in the midst of this superstorm a lot of health, power and offer my prayers to them who have lost a loved one or have had a lot of damage.
