From Carpe Diem Haiku Kai: What a joy to share our first Carpe Diem Special by Alexey Andreyev (1971- ), our featured haiku-poet from Russia. Next to his skills as a poet he has also skills as a painter and as a mathematician. He has a degree in Mathematics. By the way … I hope you all like our new logo for the Specials.

Of course you know what the goal is of these Specials? But I will tell it anyway (smiles), because there are a few new contributors. The goal of these Specials is to write, compose an all new haiku inspired on the one given by our featured poet in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one given. Not an easy task, but it’s a challenge to look in another way to the writings of fellow haiku-poets both classic and modern.
Now my attempt in the same style and tone.City’s heart pulses, obscuring light and wonder ‘neath harsh neon glare
Head on over to Carpe Diem and check out other writer’s take on Andreyev’s haiku. If the muse strikes, write your own and join in the fun.
Hope you enjoy.
Happy Reading and Writing!
