### a flower at night
drops its head in reverie
of warm mother earth

My humble haiku was written as a response to this week’s Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #14 – Revise that Haiku. Here is the original piece I considered while writing my own. And on Chevrefeuille’s prompt blog site you can read the background story in detail:
falling to the ground
a flower closer to the root
Hey, I’ve never known creating Tan Renga was such fun. You learn as you live, quite clearly. My friend, Chevrefeuille, regularly posts challenges and prompts at his awesome blog site, and today, I finally paid attention to this new thing for me. If you need explanation and guidance, you’d better visit his post. And here are my two contributions: Tan Renga Challenge #1337 – “in the fields”
it must have bloomed
from a wintry shower
in a hurry before springtime
has donned it with scarlet.

### ancient warriors ghosts
mists over the foreign highlands –
waiting for the full moon
the field will find its
forgotten army of tall grass.
A drop with a thousand colours of light – Frozen in the winter world.

I have long been absent from my friend’s haiku prompt blog, Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, but today’s haiku was written for his prompt #1332 No Time To Waste, taking inspiration from one thousand spectacular nuances of the water drop magnificence. Smiles.
My friend, Kristjaan, hosting the wonderful blog of Carpe Diem Haiku, is never tired. He offers daily, weekly and seasonal prompts. He holds contests, features many translated haiku and great pics. His blog is a great resource of information and support. Although this is not a classical haiku, because it has “my tears” in it, I wrote it after his Little Creatures prompt. Visit his haiku meme blog here. You may decide to join. Who knows what might come.
Carpe Diem, Little Things #19 – Violet
### My tears will remain in place to breathe the beauty of a violet bloom.
Here are some haiku written for several of the Carpe Diem daily prompts. It has been exactly a year since the blog was started by my haiku friend, Kristjaan and it has been a year during which my life changed a lot. I graduated, defended my thesis, lost my work, found a new one and… Well, you know what I mean.
#308 – Salmon
Silver glitter fast Beyond the rainbow river Sweet feast hugging home.
*** #309 – Bananaplant
In yellow softness Rampant mild and honey-like – Dreaming memory.
*** #310 – Dew Frost
Tears fall early All night weeping listlessly. Tears into growth.
– While on lunch break, I couldn’t come up with a haiku. The first poem is the one I wrote. Later, when I came home and sat down to post, I decided to edit my original poem a bit, but hated to lose any of the images I had, so I turned it into two haiku. Maybe not the best result, but I believe it is good enough.
