Summer Retreat (2) a pebble
The Summer Retreat of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai has started. The Summer Retreat is an all new feature at my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai ... and you are invited to participate in it. This first Summer Retreat is themed "One With Nature" and you have to write a haiku (or tanka) every day inspired on your adventures in nature. The Summer Retreat runs to August 15th 10.00 PM (CET). Yesterday I started myself too ... so here is my haiku "One With Nature" - themed for today:
A sweet little surprise ... a treasure found, a white pebble. This haiku is very minimalistic it's created in the way of Santoka Taneda, a classic free-styler haiku poet.
