Carpe Diem Extra June 12th 2017 New exclusive CDHK e-book "Furu Ike Ya"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

A while ago I did a call for submissions of  "frog"-haiku to create a new exclusive CDHK e-book. It is my pleasure to announce to you that "Furu Ike Ya" is now available for download at our Kai. You can find the link to the download at the right side of our Kai. The image used however is not the cover of this new exclusive e-book.

I have gathered your submitted haiku and tanka and have tried to bring it in a nice e-book. In this new CDHK e-book you will find not only haiku written by our family members, but also haiku by a few classical haiku poets, an article by Jane Reichhold and a small essay about frogs.

I hope you all like this new exclusive CDHK e-book.


Chèvrefeuille, your host

  2. Wonderful work Chèvrefeuille, and was a very good idea.

  3. A very nice compilation of contributor's finest work. It was fun comparing the work of classical poets and Jane Reichhold with those of our local members.

  4. Yoga originated in India, i have never heard of Tibetan Yoga, and the poses you have shown are the same in yoga.

  5. Chèvrefeuille,

    Thank you for including my haiku and for all the effort you put into producing the e-book on frogs. I am enjoying reading it.
