Carpe Diem #25, tears

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today our prompt is tears a sad prompt or a happy prompt. Tears we can shed through sadness or through happiness. It's all up to you.

weeping willow
sheds his tears on the last summer day
leaves turning yellow

leaves turning yellow
in the bright sunlight
a golden tree

a golden tree
autumn has come, tears fall
weeping willow

A lovely cascading set of haiku I think. It brings happy memories to me. As I see the weeping willow turn into a golden tree my eyes begin to twinkle. It looks so gorgeous. Ah! Autumn what a season.

This prompt will stay on 'till October 26th 11.59 AM (CET). The prompt for our next Carpe Diem will be laughter, the opposite of tears, and I will publish it today around 10.00 PM (CET).

Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku and comments with us.

By the way ... I hope you like our new lay-out ... it's autumn so I have given our weblog an autumn-jacket.

  1. I think we have wept enough for today...
    Tomorrow we'll laugh!
    I also feel a special affection to weeping willows for one I liked under my window was cut down to get rid of wasps, my poor tree!
    Evocative trio of haiku missing summer.

    1. I live close to a city parc with big pond. Along the pond stand a few Weeping Willows .... they look great with their yellow leaves ... looking like golden if the sun shines on them. They bring a smile on my face and maybe tomorrow a big laugh.
      Thank you so much for your every day posts here on Carpe Diem.

      Namaste
