Carpe Diem’s Summer Retreat 2017 (unconditional) love (3), breathtaking (a rengay)

LOGO summer retreat 2017

Dear friends,

It’s awesome to see (and read) so many beautiful haiku and tanka inspired on the theme of this year’s Carpe Diem Summer Retreat that I am just feeling proud and humble that I can and may host this Summer Retreat.

Here is my third submission for this Summer Retreat. This time I have chosen a rengay (a haiku form invented by Gary Gay) from my archives:

The starting verse (hokku) is by Basho in a translation by myself.

breathtaking
sprouting green leaves
in the sunlight

sunbeams in the mirror
her smile even brighter

in the mirror
a man in the autumn of his life
his hair turned gray

gray misty morning
cows legs in the meadow
crowing of a cock

colorful field of flowers
finally exposed to the sun

breathtaking
colors sparkling in dewdrops
just one heartbeat

In this rengay I think you can find also (unconditional) love as is the theme for this year’s Summer Retreat.

See you next time ….
