Carpe Diem Special for Dolores – September 8, 2016 – Tanka

This month the featured haiku poetess on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is Dolores from Ada’s Poetry Alcove. Dolores was the winner of the last kukai “prayers” with the following haiku:

autumn evening
like whispered prayers
leaves float away

For the first CD Special Chèvrefeuille has chosen a tanka for our inspiration. She created the tanka inspired by the music of Karunesh entitled Calling Wisdom.

paintbrush flowers
dancing on the hillside
wind blows over reeds
ancient chants resurrected
sights and sounds of summer

cacophony
shatters the evening calm
rushing home
I find refuge in silence
and the sound of wind chimes
