Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Weekend Meditation #100: waves of love

 Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

Welcome at our wonderful Haiku Kai. I love to challenge you today, in this (restart) of the Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Weekend Meditation. 

As we look at the time we live in, we can see the lack of love and peace. Covid-19 brings all kinds of emotions, for example anger and sadness. Questions like "Is this the truth?" "What is happening?" Or look at the tension around the Ukraine and Russia ... all signs of ... Yes of what? Is this the End Of Times? Is there a global revolution? 

This time is a time of despair and confusion. No one knows how our future will be. Therefore I love to challenge you to create a Tan Renga (two verses: 1st verse 3 lines 5-7-5; 2nd verse 2 lines 7-7) themed "waves of love".

I have given it a try myself (ofcourse):

teardrops fall
in the middle of the night
no more hope

the song of birds, a new day rises
waves of love warm a world in fear
