Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2017 "Life is Beautiful" - lotus flowers

Dear friends,

As you know I am hosting a daily haiku meme at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai and every season I start a so called "retreat", a period of 30 days in which the goal is to create haiku or tanka on a daily base with a theme. At the moment the 2017 Winter Retreat is running and the theme I have chosen is "Life is Beautiful".

So I thought to create a few poems with "Life is Beautiful" as theme, these poems are all themed "Life is Beautiful", but it's not always a poem in winter sphere.

reaching for the sun
lotus flowers blooms from the mud
old pond changes

deep silence
even deeper as the nightingale starts to sing
beautiful life

snow falls gently
covers up the autumn fields
faraway sounds
