Carpe Diem #1110 Winter Breath by Adrian von Ziegler

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

We are counting down to the end of 2016. These are the last few episodes of a wonderful year in which we have had happy times, but also sad times, but above all we had the opportunity to create wonderful poetry from the land of the rising sun.

Today I have a nice piece of music created by Adrian von Ziegler, a young composer. Maybe you remember that we have had a month full of his music here at CDHK, so maybe this piece of music you have heard, maybe not. I had planned a piece of music titled "Mists of Avalon", but it turned out that that piece of music was created by BrunuhVille and not by Adrian von Ziegler, so I have chosen another wonderful composition by Adrian von Ziegler titled "Winter Breath".

A beautiful composition that fits the time of the year in a great way, if you live on the Northern Hemisphere.

I hope this piece of music will inspire you to create wonderful haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms (like e.g. Sedoka or Choka)

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

This tanka I took from my personal weblog and was submitted for our recent Winter Retreat.

This episode is open for your submissions tonight at 7.00 PM (CET) and will remain open until January 2nd at noon (CET). I will try to publish our next episode, Oniria by Bruno Sanfilippo, later on.
