Shadow for Shadow CDHK! (Haiku) - July 10, 2014

Today I'm going to write for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai's new WordPress Shadow post!

Here are the basic haiku rules we can all follow:

1. A haiku is a poem which shows you a moment as short as the sound of water when you throwing a stone into it;
2. A haiku has three lines respectively with 5-7-5 syllables;
3. It’s about nature and humans as part of it;
4. Haiku has so called kigo or seasonwords to place it in the right time;
5. Mostly a haiku has a deeper spiritual meaning;
6. Haiku also uses kireiji or cuttungwords, in our language that means interpunctie;
7. The first and third line can be interchangeble.
These rules have to be followed or in other words …. Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Shadow is about the classical way of writing haiku.
Well …. I hope that this new feature is gonna work and I am looking forward to your responses. You can link your haiku to this post by the Linking Widget.
Here is the first Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Shadow prompt:

soft shoji shadows
summer sun's entegami
whispering leaves sigh

  1. Loving the softness!

  2. not sure what "entegami" is...I'm guessing it's Japanese for shadow...but this is lovely, especially paired with the photograph.

  3. Such a soft and gentle play of shadows and light. Beautiful.


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