Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What an awesome start of this new Carpe Diem Haiku Kai month ... it''s great to read all of your wonderful haiku inspired on the music by Adrian von Ziegler, our featured musician. He has composed wonderful music ranging from meditative and relaxing to metal. He has a great ability to write music which, at least myself, touches people.
Today our music piece is called Qi (or Chi) and is caught under the name ''world music'', as did our first episode of this month.
Qi or ''life-energy'' is a commonly known spiritual thought as you maybe know. In traditional Chinese culture, qi (also chi or ch'i) is an active principle forming part of any living thing. Qi is frequently translated as "natural energy", "life force", or "energy flow". Qi is the central underlying principle in traditional Chinese medicine and martial arts. The literal translation of "qi" is "breath", "air", or "gas".
