Bamboo Flute


Kristjaan Panneman, host of Carpe Diem, challenges us with the third Carpe Diem Special of this month titled “One note of the Shakuhachi”.  This month the featured haiku-poet is Soen Nakagawa.  Nakagawa was Taiwanese-born Japanese rōshi and Zen Buddhist master in the Rinzai tradition. … “The goal of this special is to write a new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the one given of the featured haiku-poet.

Soen Nakagawa’s Inspiration

One note of the shakuhachi
resounds endlessly
piercing the winter clouds

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Through bamboo flute
Haunting melody drifts
Koi sway in silence

Whole – Ese’s Shoot n Quote

“Miracles are a retelling in small letters of the very same story which is written across the whole world in letters too large for some of us to see.” ~~ C. S. Lewis

Profile of author

Clive Staples Lewis (29 November 1898 – 22 November 1963) -  born in Belfast, Ireland was commonly called C. S. Lewis.  He was a novelist, poet, academic, medievalist, literary critic, essayist, lay theologian, and Christian apologist. Although, falling away from his faith during adolescence, Lewis returned his Christian roots in his early 30′s. His faith had a profound effect on his work, and his wartime radio broadcasts on the subject of Christianity brought him wide acclaim. Lewis’s works have been translated into more than 30 languages and have sold millions of copies. The books that make up The Chronicles of Narnia have sold the most and have been popularized through stage, TV, radio, and cinema.

Spring raindrops
Mother Earth delights
Buds explode

Drop by drop
Petals yawn for more
White cat darts
