Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #36 "like Basho"

!! open for your submissions next Sunday June 10th at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It's time again for our weekend meditation that special feature for the weekend to give myself and you a little bit more time to meditate and contemplate before you have to respond. This time I have chosen for an all new feature that I have given the name "Deep Within Self". In that feature the goal is to create haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form from the heart. Try to create Japanese poetry in which you catch your Inner Most Feeling inspired on a given theme.

Carpe Diem's Deep Within Self The Third Opened
Maybe you know the idea of The Third Eye (the pineal gland) on the midst of your forehead. It is said that you can see right from the heart, soul and mind through the Third Eye. I know what that means. As you open your Third Eye you can really see. In my case I saw the past and relived the life of Basho ... and that was an eye-opener.

So ... here is your theme for this weekend-meditation "like Basho". Seek deep within self to create a haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry form and try to write "like Basho". Have a great weekend and I am looking forward to all of your wonderful "like Basho" responses next Sunday June 10th.

This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday June 10th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until June 17th at noon (CEST). Have a great weekend!

PS. Next month, July 15th, our new Summer Retreat 2018 will start. Thirty days creating haiku or tanka on a given theme. I haven't yet decided which theme it will be ... but for sure it will be a nice challenging theme again.
PPS. I have published the prompt-list for June you can find it above in the menu.
