rustle of dried leaves
being carried by autumn wind
blush of fall colors



For the inspiration for this haiku we are drawing on a new feature here at Carpe Diem Haiku. A scene is described and from this, one draws inspiration in the creation of a tanka or haiku.  To read the scene follow the link below:



Inspired by the winner of our second kukai “summertime”, Lolly is being featured this month on CDHK. There is a ebook of hers on the CDHK site. You should stop by for a read or a download, follow the link below.

For this episode Lolly writes:

spring tidings …

a message of the flowers
to decipher
a secret little alphabet
that begins with a bee

My attempt:

in a butterfly’s world

forage for nectar is far

from being

the ‘bees knees’
