on overheard wires
woodpigeons sit and grumble
preening grey plumage
their mottled heads together
they drop a single feather

Day fourteen of Carpe Diem’s Spring Retreat 2017 fragile beauty
Chèvrefeuille has welcomed us to the Spring Retreat 2017. Last year we had two retreats: one in summer and one in winter. This year he has planned four retreats following the seasons of the Northern hemisphere. For the Spring Retreat 2017 he has chosen the theme ‘fragile beauty’ which refers to the fragile start of nature after a cold, dark winter.
Each retreat will be organized around the middle of the season, so this Spring Retreat 2017 starts on January 15th (10.00 PM (CET)) and will run to February 15th (10.00 PM (CET)) over a period of 30 days.
