Carpe Diem #1686 Troiku Month (15) Nightingale

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at a new episode of our beautiful Troiku month. This month is running towards its end, but we have still 10 days to go. Tomorrow Summer will start and I hope it will be a wonderful Summer, but I hope it will not be as hot as last year. The Netherlands suffered than from a very hot summer with tropical temperatures. Well we will see.

Today I have a nice haiku by Chiyo-Ni, one of the most famous classical haiku poetesses we know. She is renown by that wonderful haiku about the Morning Glory, but that's not the haiku I have chosen.

The haiku I have chosen to challenge you with is a beauty too and she wrote it in honor of Matsuo Basho, who she saw as her teacher, her master. She wrote this on a haiga with a portrait of Basho and it is a real beauty, but maybe it will not be easy to create a Troiku with.

to listen,
fine not to listen, fine too...

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7:00 PM (CEST) and will remain open until June 27th at noon (CEST). I will try to publish our new weekend meditation later on. For now ... be inspired and have fun!
