Carpe Diem Special Full Circle #1- July 27, 2014

 At Carpe Diem Haiku Special I read:

Today I love to introduce an all new feature here at our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special weblog. I have called it ''Full Circle'' and the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12) words I will give. It's a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of it's place on the clock e.g. cherry you have to use for line one (1) and leaves for line two (2) and so on.

1. cherry  2. leaves 3. breeze 4. solstice 5. beach  6. love  7. departure  8. moon  9.
mushrooms  10. icicles  11. blizzard  12. fireworks

So Here I Go!

cheery trees and leaves
caressed by the breeze shiver
before spring solstice

walking on the beach
two people in love embrace
before departure

moon beams fall
upon  mushrooms in the woods
the owl hoots

icicles hanging
the blizzard raged suddenly
the bear sleeps soundly

children on the lake
enchanted by the fireworks
at Riva in August


  1. What a nice response on Full Circle Georgia ... I am glad that you like this new challenge.

    1. Thanks ... I love these sort of challenges ... and I'm glad you liked the response!

  2. Lovely Georgia! You are so smart and innovative to have written it like this...I stuck to one word per line and it was a bit challenging. I love your fireworks at Riva in August...just lovely!!

    1. We all love the fireworks in Riva ... hopefully it won't rain this year or they might not happen. Thanks for the compliments .. I love wordels and this is pretty much what it was.

  3. I really like this Georgia!

  4. They're all gorgeous --- but I'm especially fond of the owl haiku! It's a wonderful image. :)

    1. Liked him too ... every once in you can hear one during the night.

  5. I love Haiku as a poetic form. All of these are wonderful. Honestly, I cannot choose a favorite; each one has something that speaks to me.

  6. Thanks Rob! A wonderful compliment, thanks for dropping by to have a peek!


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
