Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2017 "Life is Beautiful"

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's time again for our Carpe Diem Retreat, 30 days of writing haiku and tanka, one a day on a theme. Winter is closing in, so here is the Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2017. For this CDHK Retreat I have chosen the theme "Life is Beautiful". I think it's a wonderful theme and I am looking forward to all of your responses.

CDHK's Winter Retreat 2017 starts tonight at 10:00 PM (CET) and will run to November 15th 10:00 PM (CET).

  1. Sorry of my entries for day 2 is not correct. Could you please remove it. Thank you for the challenge. Am enjoying it.Cheers.

  2. Because I am writing my poems in one weekly post for the next three weeks I am unable to enter each day separately. So my haiku will appear in week 2, week 3, and week 4....
