Carpe Diem Haiku Courage


A little explanation for this haiku. When Kristjaan has published the character in today’s haiku prompt, I had to write a Chinese haiku 俳句. I remembered a movie by King Hu: A Touch of Zen, which then inspired me to write this haiku. It translates into: Courage of the heroine / Riding across the Winter landscape / Sword as her shield

The lion roars
Savanna listens in awe
Courage of meerkats

In front of the Jokhang
Courage of Tibetans

Krzysztof Kokot has sent the following haiku invitation:
