Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #62 Troiku for the holidays ...
!! Open for your submissions next Sunday December 9th at 7:00 PM (CET) !!
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at a new weekend meditation here at our wonderful Kai. This weekend I love to challenge you to create a Troiku themed "holidays". We are closing in to Christmas and that means I will publish soon our first "Seven Days Before Christmas" episode 2018. You all know that's a kind of tradition here and ofcourse I will proceed with that tradition, but first ... Troiku for the Holidays.
I have ran through the episodes of earlier "Seven Days For Christmas" episodes and I found a wonderful haiku by myself:
piece of straw
blown off into emptiness
a new beginning
The above haiku is inspired on a kind of meditation I shared in 2017 during our "Seven Days Before Christmas" feature. I think it's one of my best haiku ever (how immodest), because it has so much hidden layers.
I will sit back this weekend and let go my thoughts about this haiku to share a Troiku with you myself. Wish you all a wonderful weekend.
This episode is open for your submissions next Sunday December 9th at 7:00 PM (CET) and will remain open until December 16th at noon (CET). Have fun!
