Carpe Diem Vision Quest revived #1 day 2 deep silence

!! only 24 hours to respond !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Yesterday I started Carpe Diem Vision Quest revived after several years and today I have a wonderful haiku by Basho to meditate and contemplate about ... reach out to the deep inner wisdom ... on a quest to find the deeper meaning.

Here is the haiku by Basho:

shizukasa ya iwa ni shimiiru semi no koe

deep silence
the shrill of cicadas
seeps into rocks

© Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694)

Maybe you can remember this haiku, because I used it in earlier posts here at CDHK. And here is a quote by Basho to help you to become inspired on your vision quest:

[...] "Haiku is a profound meditation on the power of poetry to express the inexpressible and convey the unspoken eloquence of all that is."[...]

hot summer night
through the open window
the sound of waves

Well ... find your path on this Vision Quest ... Try to create a new haiku (only haiku) inspired on this haiku by Basho and his quote. And remember ... you have to respond within 24 hours. I know that's very short, but it can help you to improve your "in the moment" skills.
