Carpe Diem Summer Retreat 2016 (11) whispering leaves

 Dear friends,

The Summer Retreat at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai looks awesome and a great success. It's really a joy to see how "one with nature", the theme of the Summer Retreat, in so many ways is used. Awesome.

The Poplar's leaves are always trembling even when there is almost no wind at all. It is seen as the messenger of the gods. As the winds plays with the leaves of the Poplar they tremble and than the gods are talking to us.

Sometimes the deep silence is hard to listen to. At other times, it is a great joy. One just never knows...
