Carpe Diem Full Circle #2, Puddles

Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today our second episode of this new feature at our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special weblog. I called it ''Full Circle'' and the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12) words I will give. It's a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of it's place on the clock e.g. sunflower you have to use for line one (1) and rain storm for line two (2) and so on.

I will give you twelve (12) words (for every ''hour'') one word. The goal is to write haiku using the words as given in the clock wise way.

Here are the 12 (twelve) words for this new episode:

1. sunflower
2. rain storm
3. puddles
4. sea shore
5. shells
6. making love
7. garden
8. waterfall
9. stones
10. sunrise
11. peony
12. shadow

If you follow the words clock wise than you can compose four new haiku. This new feature is just for fun and I hope you will as much enjoy it as I did have fun and joy to create it.

Here is an example of a new haiku written with the first three words:

broken sunflower
torn apart through a rain storm -
puddles on the path
