Carpe Diem #1781 The Quest For A New Masterpiece Continues ... colorful autumn
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new episode of our wonderful Kai. This month our theme is "Never Change A Winning Team", and it's all about (mostly) haiku. At the start of CDHK I focused on haiku alone and in my opinion that worked awesome, so this month I hope to challenge you to create haiku.
Maybe you can remember our special feature "Quest For A New Masterpiece" and today I love to challenge you to create your New Masterpiece, there is only one restriction ... you have to follow the classical rules (more you can find above in our Lecture 1).
The theme for your New Masterpiece is "Colorful Autumn", so your masterpiece has to do with autumn. Look around you ... see the beauty of autumn ... let your senses come in contact with autumn and let your muses inspire you.
autumn has come

she ... the moon ... lovely
This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until November 21st at noon (CET). I will try to publish our new episode, a new weekend meditation, later on. For now ... have fun!
