Maybe you have followed my other blog Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and than (maybe) you have spotted our new Carpe Diem Summer Retreat 2017. It's running towards its end and I love to publish here a submission for this Summer Retreat themed Unconditional Love. Love is one of the most important emotions I think, and Unconditional Love is what we need here on our planet, because unconditional love has no boundaries and will always reach out to other people around you and around the world.
I open my heart to spread love
on wings of birds
Without love we cannot reach our hands towards people around us. Love is really the only way to reach peace all over the globe.

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 ...
