Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #84 Quest for a new masterpiece "Movement" (Unduo)


!! Open for your submissions tomorrow at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

First I have to apologize that I am late with publishing this weekend meditation. Yesterday I had a very busy day at work, so I had no opportunity to create the weekend meditation for you. This weekend I love to challenge you again to create your NEW masterpiece.

A haiku masterpiece is a haiku that will last forever and will be renown to a lot of people. For example Basho's "frog pond" haiku is such a masterpiece. That haiku is even known by a lot of non haiku poets, because of it's beauty and spiritual layer, but also because he brought "movement" in this haiku. Before he created this "frog pond" haiku, the haiku about frogs were about their croaking. So "movement" was a new idea for haiku about frogs.

Let me give you an example of another haiku in which we see " movement":

Your task for this weekend ... create a haiku, a new masterpiece, in which you use "movement" (or undou).
