Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #47 quest for a (new) masterpiece

!! Open for your submissions next Sunday August 26th at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Summer is almost over. We have still a few days to go before the meteorological Autumn starts, that will be on September 1st. So I think this weekend meditation needs a new autumn-logo, so I will give that a thought.

For this weekend I have chosen to challenge you to create your masterpiece. Maybe you can remember our special feature "Carpe Diem's Quest For A New Masterpiece". It was back than the idea to make that a regular feature, but that didn't happen, but I like that feature so I have decided to make this feature part of the weekend meditations.

The explanation of this feature you can find HERE. The goal is to create your own masterpiece. What is a masterpiece? I think a masterpiece is a haiku (or tanka) that will survive over the years like that nice masterpiece by Basho:

old pond
a frog jumps
water sound

© Basho (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

Or that other one by Chiyo-Ni:

morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

© Chiyo-Ni (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

For this this weekend meditation you can choose your own theme to write your masterpiece about, but ... your "masterpiece" has to follow the classical rules as you can find above in the menu in CD Lecture 1.

Logo of this special feature: Quest for a masterpiece
I am looking forward to your masterpieces. Take your time, Write and revise your haiku (or tanka) and re-write it. Try to create your masterpiece as strong as those I gave as an example.

This weekend meditation is open for your submissions next Sunday August 26th at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until September 2nd at noon (CEST). Have a wonderful weekend with a lot of inspiration.
