Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Welcome at the new Carpe Diem Spring Retreat 2018. The CDHK Retreats are a period of 30 days in which you have to write a haiku or tanka every day on a chosen theme. This Spring Retreat 2018 I have chosen the the "The Light Of The World". This theme sounds religious or spiritual, but I think it's more than that. "The Light Of The World" can also be nature, art-work, happiness and more. So it's not only a religious theme ...
As we look at the true meaning of "The Light Of The World" than we all will say something like "the light of the world is Jesus Christ", but ... of course that's not the only meaning ... think out of the box and try to create haiku or tanka themed "the light of the world" from the heart and not from the mind.

cherishes her naked body
her sweet perfume
