The year 2020 is not all bad. Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (which is one of the islands of light in an ocean of darkness) celebrated its eighth anniversary on 2020-10-01. The fine haiku poet who founded and curates CDHK suggested writing “a nice festive haiku or tanka” for the occasion.

My response salutes the pluralism and progressivism implicit in CDHK. We can honor and build upon the past w/o being confined by it.

To sing of all that’s
true and good and beautiful,
write haiku poems.
