Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu #85 Back in time: Use that quote

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's my pleasure to bring a new episode of our Carpe Diem Tokubetsudesu feature. Last week we traveled back in time and this week I love to do that again.

This week I love to challenge you with a quote. There was a special feature at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, titled "Use that Quote". As you will understand the goal is to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form inspired on a quote.

I love to challenge you with a quote by Lord Byron:

" There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where 
none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more." 

Quote by: Lord Byron 

Lord Byron (1788-1824)
Here is my attempt to create a haiku inspired on this quote

all senses open
a forest walk

This Tokubetsudesu episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until July 3rd at noon (CET). I will (try to) publish our new episode, Portugal, later on. For now ... enjoy the challenge.
