Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #87 Crossroads ...

!! Open for your submissions next Sunday June 2nd at 7:00 PM (CEST) !!

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new weekend meditation here at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. Today (June 1st) Summer starts according to meteorology, so I have created a new logo for our weekend meditation. On the logo you see the renown Golden Temple (Kinkaku-ji) at Kyoto Japan.

As you all know the weekend meditation is a way to meditate and contemplate about your Japanese poetry before publishing. This weekend I love to challenge you with a "Crossroads" episode. The goal is to create a new haiku inspired on two given haiku and create a Troiku with the newly created haiku. (More on Troiku above in the menu).

Deep Silence

Here are the two haiku to work with, both are created by myself:

reaching for the sun
lotus flowers bloom from the mud
old pond changes

deep silence
even deeper as the nightingale starts to sing
beautiful life

Create your new haiku from or inspired on these two haiku and create a Troiku with your new haiku. Enjoy your weekend and this Crossroads challenge.

This episode is open for your submissions next Sunday June 2nd at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until June 9th at noon (CEST). Have a wonderful weekend.
