Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

I love to introduce an all new feature here

at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

I have called it “Carpe Diem’s Time Machine”

and it’s all about “playing again” prompts

from our rich Carpe Diem Haiku Kai history. ….

At the start of Carpe Diem (October 2012)

we had a “rainbow-week” in November.


In my country (The Netherlands)

we have our Royal Family of Orange,

orange is a strong color in my country,

but orange can also stand for a citrus fruit.

Orange flowers and more orange to see around us …

what do you think of a beautiful sunset or sunrise …


orange chrysanthemums
in full bloom standing proudly
waving in the wind

I have to admit that I never have had seen a orange house,

but as I was surfing the WWW

I ran in to a wonderful picture of a orange house

somewhere in Bogota.

And I had to write a haiku along going with it.



all day sunrise
what a joy to live in
my orange house

Orange … really my color.

Here is another haiku which I wrote last year

after the World Championship Soccer in Brasil,

as you maybe remember our National Soccer team

“the Orange Lions” lost there dream

at that championship. I wrote this haiku than:


almost full moon
colors orange behind thin clouds –
scattered dreams

Well … I have to take the “Time Machine” back to 2015,

because I love to share an all new haiku on “orange”:


ah! that sweet perfume

oranges and lemons –

a cool summer night
