Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2016 "find the silence" #19 a tanka


Dear friends,

Just a few minutes ago I created a new post for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In that episode I shared a tanka that was inspired on a piece of music, but it fits also the theme of the Winter Retreat, so I love to share that Tanka here too for the Winter Retreat of Carpe Diem.


heavenly music
resonates through the neighborhood
early sunrise
birds praising their creator
I embrace my love

carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2016 "find the silence" #14 walk through the forest


Dear friends,

I has been a few days ago that I posted here at my personal weblog. I am (to) busy with my daily haiku meme Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. Yesterday I started with the new month of Carpe Diem. This month I hope to inspire my visitors with classical music of all times and from all over the globe. Therefore for this Winter Retreat I have tried to bring the two things together.





The above music video gives you Ernesto Cortazar playing Beethoven’s Silence.

This music piece inspired me to create the following haiku:

walk through the forest
only the sound of nature to enjoy
ah! that silence

through the river
twister takes the fastest path -
birds remain silent

Dear friends,

Another submission for the Winter Retreat "find the silence" of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai.

Ah! that silence
the first day of a new year
the wind of last year
plays with bare branches
nothing has changed

Dear friends,

Another nice haiku for the Winter Retreat, but not in the setting of winter, but in the setting of summer.

makes me drowsy and happy -
a late summer night

Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2016 "find the silence" #9


Dear friends,

During lack of time it wasn't possible to publish every day lately, so my excuses for that. As you all know at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai the Winter Retreat is running. 30 Days writing every day a haiku or tanka themed "find the silence".

Here is my new submission for the Winter Retreat 2016:

rustling leaves
telling stories from all over the world
the silence deepens

Carpe Diem Winter Retreat 2016 "find the silence" #8


Dear friends,

I am on the nightshift and that means that I have not enough time to write for this or my other weblog. However ... a haiku in which the theme of this Carpe Diem Winter Retreat "find the silence" is used must be done.

I love writing haiku (or tanka) and it's really a joy to create haiku (or tanka) on a daily base. So I just had to do it.

Today I have a nice tanka for you, maybe you have read this one already on one of my other blogs, but as I stated above ... I don't have time enough. This one is from my archives:

autumn departs
in deep silence willow leaves fall -
tears on this grave
as the willow is green again
another year has gone
