Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome in Estonia, our new stage in our Europe Ginko. Recently Hamish "Managua" Gunn came up with a prompt suggestion which I think I am gonna use here already. His suggestion was about the (Neo-)pagan religion in Estonia, Maausk (meaning: native faith). Let me tell you a little bit about this (neo-)pagan religion.

I like this religion it seems to fit my "religious and spiritual" feeling as a haiku poet. As a haiku poet I live close to nature (and worship that nature) so this neo-pagan religion Maausk fits me very well. I see in every part of nature something to fall in love with or to belief in, nature is really spiritual and it is so me ...
I love to bring more about Maausk, but maybe that's something for a new month of Carpe Diem or maybe a Theme Week.
Let us take a look at the Estonian landscape / nature. As I was doing my research for this episode I ran into a beautiful image of Keila Waterfall:

the sound of falling water mesmerizing -
Or what do you think of this wonderful forest:
walking through the forest
the cry of an eagle
Really the nature of Estonia is overwhelming ...
As I have done in every episode of this month I have searched the Internet for haiku poets of Estonia. I found one who is well known I think. His name is Andres Ehin. Ehin died in 2011. I found a series of haiku written by him, but they are gathered in an image, which I will give hereafter.
