Kristjaan at Carpe Diem invites us to revise two haiku by Soen Nakagawa (1907-1984). The first one inspired two haiku. A shakuhachi is a flute that was originally introduced in Japan from China during the 6th century and is often used in meditation.

We wish you all a very happy Monday and a wonderful new week!

With love, Xenia xxx
