I’m happy they do, Gilly Frankly I wasn’t sure of how they would be viewed, especially the first two with the African dimension 🙂

I LOVE all of these. My favorite is “warm evening lull love brew in African pot mama’s tasty meals” Food and love are all one thing to me. What a nice picture, Celestine.
Thank you so much, Alice. Writing this particualr haiku reminded me of my mother and the love and care she puts in cooking meals for us even now.

There’s nothing like the love that goes into a mother’s cooking and there are few more important things a mother can do for her family. Give your mother a big hug from me. 🙂
really lovely trio, espec. liked the third..
Thank you, 🙂
Okay …. I’m going to stop pretending now. What is a Carpe Diem, and what makes it a special form of poetry?
Carpe Diem is a daily haiku meme where you can write a classical or non-classical haiku on a given prompt. I think what makes it special is the meaning of Carpe Diem – seize the day. 🙂
Ah Thank you 🙂
