Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Last year I started with our CDHK kukai's and created anthologies with the submissions. In our first anthology "Petal Lanterns" I gathered all the haiku submitted by you for the kukai "wisteria" and "summertime". The title of that first anthology "Petal Lanterns" was extracted from the submitted haiku by Hamish Managua Gunn (a.k.a. Pirate), our featured haiku poet this month and the provider of all the essays this month on "senses". To honor and thank him for what he is doing for CDHK this month I have chosen the haiku "Petal Lanterns" to inspire you with for this episode of CDHK's Special.

And this is the haiku by Hamish from which I extracted the title of the first CDHK kukai anthology:
a waterfall of flowers
her lips touch mine
A very nice (delicate) haiku by Hamish to inspire you to write a haiku or tanka trying to catch the spirit of the haiku by Hamish.
Here is my attempt:
Thank you Hamish for all you do (and have done) to make CDHK a success. This month is really awesome.
