Namasté

Dear friends,

Just minutes ago I launched a new special feature at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, my daily haiku-meme on blogspot. This new feature is titled “Namasté, the spiritual way” and the goal is to create haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form with a deeper, spiritual, meaning.
As you maybe know a deeper meaning is part of the classical haiku idea, so I think this can be a wonderful way to improve your haiku writing skills. Here is my submissions for this new CDHK special feature “Namasté, the spiritual way”.

Dear friends,

maybe you have already read it, but if not I love to invite you to visit my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we are walking The Road to Santiago together with Paulo Coelho while reading his novel “The Pilgrimage”, but that’s not all afew days ago I started the Spring Retreat 2017, 30 days of writing haiku, tanka, haiga or tank-art at least one a day themed “fragile beauty”.

Dear friends,

The Winter Retreat of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, my daily haiku meme on blogspot, is almost over. You have still five days to participate. The Winter Retreat, 30 days of writing haiku or tanka every day, ends on December 15th 10.00 PM (CET).

For today I have a nice tanka for you in which I think the silence is obvious and strong.

after the hot summer
finally the beauty of Mother Earth
her crescendo
colorful leaves covered
with the first frost
