Carpe Diem Universal Jane #8 gathering clouds

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our CD feature in honor of Jane Reichhold, Universal Jane. In this special feature we honor the beauty and knowledge of Jane Reichhold, one of the best modern haiku poetesses.
Jane died at the end of July 2016 and she will be missed forever. She meant a lot for our Haiku Community, so therefore I created this special feature.

Not so long ago I wrote an obituary for Jane Reichhold to share her memory with the Dutch Haiku Circle, this obituary you can find at Haiku.nl (unfortunately it's only in Dutch).

I love to inspire you with a few "winter" - haiku by Jane.

gathering clouds
heavy and dark with holding
unfallen flakes
bell-tone circles
as path to meditation
across galaxies
sky covering with snow
mountain deep
a sky covering with snow
our way home
blue cold snow
warmed by fallen leaves
russet brown

Well .... I hope you did like this Universal Jane episode and that it inspired you.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until December 11th at noon (CET).

PS. I have updated our December prompt-list 2016, the second week of our "Let The Music Inspire You" will be awesome and a tribute to female composers !!

  1. Very nice to keep in touch with Jane during this splendid month. The classical music (and some modernist) seems to fit haiku and tanka so well. Once again, your work really appreciated.
