My skeleton
going for a walk
in the cemetery  ............  Garry Gay



Kristjaan Panneman, host of Carpe Diem Haika Kai, invites various persons to challenge the family of haiku writers.  Garry Gay, a world renowned haiku poet has challenged us to think outside the box.  His inspiration for us is the above walking skeleton.  Join the Kai in this fun challenge.  Or at the very least click here to see how the poets thought outside the box!
