Carpe Diem – Kanpai!

For Carpe Diem we are asked to interpret a piece of music, Kanpai!, composed by a Swiss artist, Adrian von Zeigler, and turn it into a haiku.

Mine is open to interpretation. I’m not even sure I could explain what I mean. That’s the beauty of the music. And the meaning of the word, kanpai, the Japanese equivalent of Cheers!

    What was I thinking???!!! 😉
