The September Heights

Hello! Welcome to Haiku Heights, and the Height of Haiku Challenge in September... (THE SEPTEMBER HEIGHTS)

The topics for each day in September are given below.



I hope to see many of you here through the month and hope you have fun writing haiku.

Just a general reminder... please keep your haiku to a maximum of 17 syllables.

Waiting for the 1st of September, as I think are many of you too.

You can use this page for general discussions on each day once the prompts are out as well.


Have fun :)

Your host,
Leo.

Hazel said...

This is so tempting... I fancy joining; will check my miserable timetable.

Loredana Donovan said...

Hi Harshal, a drawbridge is a movable bridge that lifts and opens :)

Harshal Gupta said...

Thank you Loredana.:)

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

"Drawbridge" just about had me stumped, as I don't normally think of the word as one to use in haiku.

Ellecee said...

I am so happy to be joining everyone again for a good challenge at writing haiku.
A question for the administrator. Why is there always and "X" by my post?

Susan said...

Dear host Leo,
Will you be visiting sites
on September nights?

Leo said...

@Susan

traveling now
but should be back in time
for haiku moon

:)

Leo said...

@Ellecee,

In case you link wrongly, that X enables you to remove the link from our linky widget. It'll be there till you clear cookies from your browser, or the linky time limit ends. :) It's quite normal, don't worry. Happy Heights to you...! :)

Leo said...

Ghostom, I don't know how to contact you at your blog :) I hope you find this, or someone who knows you can pass on the message...

Please click on the post title in your blog, and not on your dashboard. Clicking on post title in blog gives you the post link, whereas in your dashboard, just gives the post editor, which isn't public and viewable to all.

Regards,
Leo.

Hi friends... I'm back from a weekend of traveling. I hope to be by most of your blogs from Day 4 onwards. Overwhelmed at the support to the September Heights. Thanks thanks! :D Hope you are having a lot of fun already.

Loredana Donovan said...

Hi everyone, I'm back from a weekend away and just catching up. My moon haiku is linked up and includes the previous prompts, too :) Enjoying the challenge and visiting. Thanks, Leo :)

Hi... OOOOH I am so delighted that I checked further... I thought I could not access previous prompts.
Will post days 1-4 tomorrow... Wonderful challenge !

Leo said...

It'd b nice if u could post day 1-5 in one post Dr Pearl :) linky for 1-3 is closed n day 4 closes in 5.5hrs.

Ramesh Sood said...

Leo..I am enjoying writing Haiku...and reading too..but nowadays get a bit stuck so not able to leave comments for all..but read I do...

Will try to complete the challenge Leo...Thanks..

RS:)

Leo said...

That part is tough for me too, RSji.. to leave a comment for all. :) But hang in there. I'm sure you can do it, one blog at a time.

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

Hi Ooooh I will link 1-4 in one post .... ( I thought I had just missed the boat!)....

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

Hi All - I was delighted to be able to catch up and participate. ... I did not think that I'd be able to post Days 1-4 . I noticed Leo's earlier request that I submit those 'catch-up' submissions under one link which I have done (including today's which was posted properly and separately)...
Looking forward to a more leisurely pace and sharing for the rest of the month. :) Happy Haiku

Dr. Pearl Ketover Prilik (PKP) said...

As requested just posted! Thank you for the opportunity to catch up... Pearl... (please I cannot seem to change my Google account.. and I am not psychoanalyzing here:)

Leo said...

Got caught in the rain, and then caught a fever... Would be missing the Gloss entries, but be back on the Pepper prompt.

MAHARUKH said...

hope you recovered!

Ellecee said...

Hello to everyone - This is such a wonderful month of haiku so far is it not? There is so much that is very special about it all. And it still continues. I want to thank everyone for their kind comments on my contributions. These comments are appreciated very much and they encourage me to think more deeply.

Kristjaan Panneman said...

So far the September Heights are a joy to participate in. I have read wonderful haiku and it's still continueing. Love it when I can write an every day haiku or cascade haiku and read all those nice comments. Thank you all forthis stunning haiku month. Keep inspired and enjoy.

Harshal Gupta said...

Missed "creation" and "Grass" as was out of town. Will be posting "Creations" soon.

Leo said...

If you are going to link up, then it has to be to the current prompt, "Meadow". You can of course write for "Creation", "Grass" and "Meadow" in one post and link that to "Meadow".

Ramesh Sood said...

My effort to keep myself focused on 'She' in her various roles has been pushing me to create night after night...as my own rule I look at the prompt fifteen minutes before the midnight hour..and try to create it spontaneously with help of God...duly helped by God and your god wishes have survived 28 days...two more to go..hopefully will complete the challenge..

Thank you everyone for your constant support and encouragement..not able to keep up with comments but I read and try to catch-up..

Kristjaan Panneman said...

The September Heights is almost over. It was a real journey through all kinds of prompts. It wasn't always easy to write a haiku on a given prompt mainly because of the language, as you know English isn't my mother tongue, but I succeeded every day again. Sometimes I was delighted with the haiku I had written and sometimes I wasn't satisfied with it, but always ... my haiku got wonderful comments. It was great to do this and I can't wait 'till the next April Heights of 2013. Well ... it was really a joy to participate in the September Heights and now ... our paths going apart again. I will start my own daily haiku meme Carpe Diem, seize the day, and I hope to see a lot of visitors who share their haiku with Carpe Diem.
For now ... Leo thank you for hosting a wonderful month of haiku writing ... it was a joy and I enjoyed reading all those different post of all our Haijin here. Thank you for giving us, haiku addicts, the opportunity to write a haiku on a given prompt every day of September.

Harshal Gupta said...

Wow, cannot believe today would be the last prompt. It was so lovely to write and read all those haiku and receive wondefful and encouraging comments from great poets here. This was my first Haiku month, and I enjoyed it very much. Thank you very much Leo for hosting such brilliantly and also for your nice comments. Only thing I regret is missing out on those 2 prompts due to my travelling, other than that, it has been a lovely journey. :)

Hello and goodbye to all - what a delightful month - I apologize for having too many "catch-up" days when I posted more than one haiku....but the Universe justly addressed by lassitude and closed me out of the final three! Hope some might take a look. If not, I'll accept my come-uppance with my "big girl pants on"
Again - lovely experience!
