This new feature, this new challenge, goes back to the roots of haiku and challenges you to go back to basic. It's very similar to our other special feature "Goes Back to Its Roots". The title of this new feature is referring to the classic rules of haiku, but in this new feature not all those classic rules have to be used, just a few of them.
2. A moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water

Let me give it a try with the above photo which I took in the city-park just around the corner in my hometown. This park is ... an oasis in a busy part of my hometown. As I walk here I don't even feel that I am in the city. In spring this park is a peaceful place and in winter, as the pond is frozen, it's a joyful place to skate and meet other people from my neighborhood. In summer you can even swim here. And of course in autumn it's the place to be to search for chestnuts and colorful leaves.
in every season of the year
the place to contemplate
