As you maybe know I am hosting a daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. This month we are on our way to Santiago de Compostela following that ancient pilgrimage route, but we also are busy with the Spring Retreat 2017 themed "fragile beauty", 30 days of writing at least one haiku a day to celebrate spring.
Feel free to visit and be part of this 30 days of writing haiku.
to see tears on young leaves
the bright sunlight
See you ...

Maybe you have read it somewhere, but else I love to tell you. Every year I organize a seasonly "retreat" and on January 15th I started with the Spring Retreat "fragile beauty". The "retreat" means 30 days of writing (at least) one haiku or tanka themed "fragile beauty".
So here is my first "Spring Retreat" submission:
fresh fallen snow
fragily beauty covers the garden
blanket of diamonds
See you ...
