Finding the Way Day 7

My daily response to Carpe Diem Summer Retreat 2018 Finding the Way

At Carpe Diem, it’s time again for the traditional seasonal retreat: a period of 30 days in which the goal is to write a daily haiku or tanka about a theme. In this year’s Summer Retreat the theme is ‘Finding the Way’.

  1. to explore the shadows … in the wilds, is always a blessing – as long as one doesn’t have to venture too far into the deep darkness of the absolute wilderness! how lovely … I really love the word “dapple” … it just suggests so much … yet within a comfort zone 🙂

    1. Thank you, Pat. I’ve never really been in the wilds, only forests in Germany and the UK. I can’t imagine what it must be like in really wild places with dangerous animals, insects and such like. I’d love that but I’d also be scared. As a tree lover, dapple is one of my favourite words. 🙂

      1. I can relate – I don’t mind moderate discovery, but for all the beauty and adventure of the truly wild places? I’d be freaking out for all the “dangerous” elements …. so I don’t think I’d be at all able to enjoy the experience. LOL
