Carpe Diem #278, Japanese Spring

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

What a joy to prepare an all new episode of Carpe Diem with wonderful inspirational music by Karunesh I am still a lucky man that I may use his music for our daily haiku meme. Really I hadn't even dreamed about this, but I am for sure a lucky man. And I am so glad that you, my dear friends, do like the music by Karunesh and that it inspires you to such wonderful haiku. It makes me proud and humble to be your host here.
Today I love to share the next musical video made by Christy Andreii on Japanese Spring by Karunesh. Enjoy the video, lean back listen to the music, be one with the music and let the music inspire you to write new haiku for Carpe Diem.

Isn't it wonderful? Lovely music which brings the joy of the Japanese Spring. This track Japanese Spring is from the album "Colours of Light" (1987). It's one of his first albums he ever made. So in this track you can hear the 'old' Karunesh and you can compare this track with other tracks we have had through the last weeks. 

joyful time of year
cherry blossoms start blooming -
the rustling breeze

the rustling breeze
asks the cherry blossoms for a dance -
tears are flowing

A joyful circle of life caught in a set of haiku ... Have fun, be inspired and share your haiku with Carpe Diem.

This prompt will stay on 'till August 24th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our next episode, Calling Wisdom, later on today around 7.00 PM (CET). !! Japanese Spring is open for submissions at 7.00 PM (CET) !!
