Carpe Diem Special #68. Hando's 4th/ Tears of Joy

This has been my first month doing the Carpe Diem Haiku Challenges and I've enjoyed them a lot. I've made some beautiful connections and met some wonderful Poets. This has been a wonderful experience for me. Thank you to everyone in the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Family and everyone that's supported me.  Now to the challenge, write a haiku in the same sense tone and spirit.

The puddles on the pavement
carry the moon, the stars  (c) Hando
and cherry blossoms.

snow melts on the path
reflect the sun in gray skies
capture tears of joy

Thank you ....Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Carpe Diem #354/ Blessed with a Daughter

Carpe Diem
I haven't found how to add the music yet, but I'm afraid its late in the month to start now. It's a lovely piece too, oh well. This poem is inspired by the music from the month long artist Adrian von Ziegler, Alvae, and my belief in Native Choice.

Blessed with a Daughter

 Hands, of reverent care
 Plant the oak, a symbol for
 his daughter's birth

The Awe people are the most threatened native tribes on the planet. They live off the tropical forest that has seen 30% of the major area devastated by loggers. About 450 remain and of those 100 have no interaction with  modern society.   They have the right to live their lives the way the choice. Brazil, save the Awe!

Thank you.....Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Tan Renga Challenge
This is a wonderful poem by the well-known Haiku poetesses Jane Reichhold. I'm afraid that I want do this poem justice, but I'll try.

Melting into the sea
the full moon               (c) Jane Reichhold
leaves a candle bright

Against the black like blue hues
Lighting your way back to me

Thank you....CarpeDiem Haiku Kai
