Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at the first episode of a new month of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month I love to challenge your inspiration through fanmous (and not that famous) quotes by known and unknown people, but to start this month with I have chosen a wonderful quote by one of my heroes, Mahatma Gandhi (1882-1948).
Gandhi was murdered in 1948 because he fought against the British oppressor in India without violence only through his deeds and words. Gandhi was a very strong personality and also a very spiritual leader.
|Mahatma Gandhi (1882-1948)|
Here is the quote for your inspiration:
A very strong quote I think with a great spiritual layer and I think it will be "easy" to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form inspired on this quote.
birds praising their Creator
symphony of nature
