Carpe Diem Weekend-meditation #3 on the river

!! Open for your submissions next Sunday September 24th at 7:00 PM (CET) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Time flies when you have fun, or a busy week. I had a very busy week, but I also had a lot of fun, not only private, but also at work. My work isn't possible without fun. As an oncology nurse I work with patients that are very ill, they all have a kind of cancer and are treated for it. There is always sadness, but we also have a lot of fun with each other. It's amazing how cancer patients are coping with their illness and their life ... they are all very strong.

This weekend-meditation I love to challenge you again to create a Troiku. This week I love to challenge you with that haiku by Basho which I shared in one of the Wandering Spirit episodes of last week.

And here is the haiku which you have to use for this Troiku-challenge:

on the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice

Or to make it easier, you can also choose the following haiku to use written by myself. And if you have fun with creating Troiku, than please feel free to create a Troiku with both of these haiku.

on the credenza
the images of ancestors
lighted by a candle

More about Troiku you can find in the menu, first there is an explanation of the form and second you can find a CDHK e-book "Flamingo Clouds" in the menu full of gorgeous Troiku.

Well ... have a great weekend. 

This episode is open for your submissions next Sunday September 24th at 7:00 PM (CET) and it will remain open until October 1st at noon. I will publish our new episode around that same time. A preview of our new CD Imagination is now available at our CDHK Tumblr.


  1. Glad you had a good week Kristjaan. Enjoy your weekend and thank you for the prompts.
