Arrival of Summer – Summer Kigo – June 1, 2015

The country side

The country side

walking in warm fields
crushed dill-weed sweetens the air
summer perfume

The June episodes of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai will be dedicated to summer and specifically to the modern kigo developed by Jane Reichhold – her dictionary can be found HERE.  I’ve chosen to use the summer plants category … dill.

Breaking News!!!

NOW AVAILABLE

You might  remember,  this spring CDHK invited whomever would like to participate in a contest, the kukai was dedicated to Wisteria and the first prize was to be able to publish a haiku book on CDHK, our winner was Rallentanda from Australia.  Her haiku book was published yesterday under the title of “A Carpet of Purple” and can be downloaded now HERE.

And here’s a link for the Summer Kukai … remember that your work must be emailed before June 15th to:
