Maybe you know I am hosting a daily haiku meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai (link on the right). At Haiku Kai I have a seasonly feature the so called "season-retreat". At the moment the Summer Retreat 2018 is on and the theme is "finding the way". So I have to create haiku (or tanka) themed "finding the way".
I have created a haiku inspired on this theme about the once in a lifetime pilgrimage of Buddhists along the 88 temples on the Island Shikoku. At Carpe Diem Haiku Kai we did this pilgrimage virtually back in 2014.

Lotus from the deep
I hope to do this pilgrimage once in my lifetime too.
See you ...
