Full circle # 1.


Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,
                         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  I will give you twelve (12) words (for every ''hour'') one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clock wise way.

Here are the 12 (twelve) words:

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

With these words you have to compose new haiku e.g. this haiku based on the three first words:irl
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.

 Note I have used last three words in the same order, as given above.

                                                                         Climbing icicles tardy
                                                                     A blizzard retards their steps
                                                                          fireworks bring warmth.

  1. That is interesting word-whirl Ushaji.
    Blushing red cherries,
    green leaves whisper sweet nothings,
    scent of love in breeze.
