water flows beneath
breeze rustles through bamboo
bridge to spirit world

“Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
While creating an all new episode I remember how Basho hoped to bring his idea of Karumi into the world … being a traveling haiku poet or more specific a traveling renga-master. He was anxious to tell everyone about his idea of Lightness in haiku art … maybe that’s what I am trying too here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. I feel connected with Basho and his love for haiku … That’s the reason why I started with CDHK bringing the wonderful art of haiku into the world … and I hope that CDHK can bring people to the idea of trying (once in their lifetime) to write haiku.
I know that several of you were haiku poets before I started CDHK, but … I have heard from several of you that CDHK has brought them more joy and insight in the wonderful art of haiku-ing. And now … I take you all with me in the footsteps of Basho, the traveling poet, on the Narrow Road Into The Deep North. Today we will go on with our journey and we are walking further into the deep north.”~Chevrefeuille
