Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Summer morning (July 3rd); Butterflies ("Encore" July 3rd); Rainy season (July 5th) and Rainbow (July 6th).
Adjei lives in Kimasi Ghana and is co-founder of the Poetry Foundation Ghana. He is the inventor of the "afriku" a haiku especially with scenes and images from Africa. At the moment he is creating his own personal weblog. He has already published a lot on the divers websites for poetry in Africa.
Here are his haiku for your inspiration. The goal is to write/compose all new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the ones I have given. You may use them all, but that isn't an obligation, you can also take one or two haiku for your inspiration.
all in her eyes
the ocean, sand and nudity!
the silent clap of a butterfly
May rains drop
the bamboo fence
free from termites plaster
and his so-called bowl
little kids argued all day
Four wonderfully composed haiku. I hope they will inspire you all. During lack of time I have chosen to use the butterfly haiku for my inspiration.
fluttering of fragile wings
waving on the wind
butterflies resting in the sun
on the Buddleia

This episode will be open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until July 10th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, natsu no nami (summer waves), later on.
