Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
We are on our way to the stars. We already visited Andromeda and today we will explore Aquila (Eagle). In this constellation we find the bright stars Altair and Vega which have their own Japanese Festival on the 7th of the 7th month Tanabata and there are a few haiku which are written by Basho about this Tanabata Festival. That story in short:
through the leaves of the silk tree
light falls from the stars
autumn is truly here
as nights begin
© Matsuo Basho
We will see this wonderful festival again in our celebrations month October 2015.
Here at CDHK we have seen the Eagle several times coming by and so I have chosen a few haiku from my archives to share here with you all.
King of Birds praying
Om Mane Padme Hum
I feel like an Eagle watching
searching for new life
inside with my Inner Eye
flight of an Eagle
as free as a bird in the sky
living my dream
And a last one, also by myself:
telling all wisdom of the steppes -
cry of an eagle
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until September 5th at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our next episode, Camelopardalis (Giraffe), later on.
