Carpe Diem #1476 Silver Park

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

First I have an announcement to make. As you (will) see at the right of our Kai, the link towards our forum is deleted. I have deleted the forum, because it didn't work well enough and it took to much of my time to keep it up to date.
Second I have another announcement to make ... next month August 2018 we will go on a journey here at CDHK. We will visit countries all over the world for their folk music. Every regular episode will feature a music video of a kind of folk music. I will try to tell you a little bit background on that kind of folk music and I hope that will help your muses to awaken.

Okay ... back to this new episode of our wonderful Kai. As I told you earlier this month I love to share images of my hometown this month too. And today I have another wonderful image for you. It's our so called "Silver Park" and it is situated in front of the hospital were I am working as an oncology nurse. In this same "Silver Park" the youth of our town have created what they call "Silver Hills", it's a skateboard yard with all kind of tricks. It's a wonderful place to relax for them and it's really a joy to watch them while doing their tricks.

The hospital you cannot see on this photo, but it's situated more to the right in this photo. The name of this park is derived from the Silver Birches around this park and that brought a haiku from my archives in mind:

in pale moonlight
silver birches look like ghosts
rustling leaves

And a new one, more inspired on the image:

sound of water
waterlilies dance in the sun
ah how refreshing!

This episode is NOW OPEN (TOO) for your submissions and will remain open until July 23rd at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new episode later on. Have a great day full of inspiration!
