Carpe Diem #1201 Campanula (Blue Bell)


Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Today I have another nice prompt for you, but because of lack of time I have chosen to chellenge you just with an image of the Blue Bell (or Campanula).

I found a nice haiku that fits this episode like a glove. I don't know who the poet is, but I give the credit to the weblog were I found it.

Travelling plants take
Roads up and down our mountains
No legs, yet still fast
And I found another beauty written by Bob Heffill that I love to share here too:

Campanula and primrose
Jewels around the peaks. Summer
On Daisetsuzan

Another nicely created haiku themed Campanula is the following by Edward L. Tisch (1937-2007) and published on the website of the UBC Botanical Garden:

The entire sky
Leans in all directions
Trying to match your blue.
And here a last example of a haiku themed Campanula. I don't know the name of this poet, but you can find her/his weblog HERE:
Bellflower clusters
ring silent chimes, calling bees
to honeyed nectar.

Well I hope you did like this short episode and I hope I have inspired you.
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until June 10th at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, Corydalis, later on.
