The sound of the sea

Dear friends and followers,

It has been a while before I could find time to publish here again on my personal weblog. As you maybe know I am a busy guy and I enjoy that very much. Next to this personal weblog I have a daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai ... a weblog that takes really a lot of my time.

Recently I had a Theme Week about the "Latifa Prayer", maybe you know that wonderful and powerful Sufism prayer, maybe not ...

I wrote several haiku (and a tanka) during this Theme Week which I love to share here too:

lotus flowers
rising from the depths of the pond
everlasting love
like a river flows onwards
uncertain of its goal

Love is about your deepest desires, let your heart speak ... and not your mind.
in deep prayer
eyes closed in devotion -
Lotus starts to bloom

dancing dervishes
reflecting movements
Lotuses dance too

And in our last Carpe Diem Kukai "New Life" I also submitted a few haiku:

dark wintertime
searching for new life
snowdrops bloom

beneath the shroud
a pharaoh travels to the stars
everlasting life

she is lovely
the first full moon of Summer
the sound of the sea

Well I hope you did like this post. Have great weekend.

New E-books published on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Dear friends and followers,

Recently I created three (3) e-books which are published and free for download on my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (CDHK). The e-books are all anthologies of the Theme Weeks I have had on CDHK.
I also published the first real edition of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai's own e-zine Souchou at CDHK.

It's a joy to read the e-books and it gives you a great feeling as a haiku poet (and publisher) to hear all the positive responses.

Feel free to visit the Carpe Diem Library too.
