Haiku Shuukan #6 use that quote ...

Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,

It has been a while that I challenged you here at Haiku Shuukan, part of the wonderful Carpe Diem Haiku Kai family of haiku poets. Recently I changed the theme at our "homepage" Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. I started this month with the Quran and now we are reading the wonderful poetry by Rumi, a 13th century Persian poet and mystic.

This week I love to challenge you to create a haiku or tanka inspired on a given quote. This time I have chosen a quote by Rumi.

Rumi, the Mystical Poet
Here is the quote for your inspiration:

[...] "Beauty surrounds us, but usually we need to be walking in a garden to know it." [...] Rumi

garden of Eden
just around the corner
no one sees it

This episode is NOW OPEN for your submissions and will remain open until March 19th at noon (CET). Have fun!
