Walks – Carpe Diem Special #194 A Trip Along Memory Lane

would we walk

in open fields in May

while wondering

~

love a mystery

sweet underbrush of thyme

always asking

~

sudden were your moves

me, naive in love, yet

able to forget

~

sunlight surreal

the fields, the open breeze

you, miles away, gone

~

Souls in Grace – Sparkling Stars # 19 – Haiku

In here I am speaking of a world I do not personally know, yet only can imagine. In time, though we, with knowledge of what is real may slowly strive to then appreciate change, and center our world with ‘love’

~

We did know her pain

witnesses of vacancy

in the Man that spoke

~

watch and learn and cry

for no other reason why

except to accept

~

time is a rule now

learned with years of sacrifice

these blues so sweet sing

~

when last we spoke you

suggested lies forgiven

yet still your eyes play

~

Society breathe

spark imagination wake

our proclivity

~

listen to passions

jazzy instrumental speak

loud cry on this love!

Carpe Diem Time Glass #20, A Frog Jumps In

frog`

When only a child we would play, our nets in hand, to chase the pond rewards – from tadpoles of spring, to jumpers in summer, the murky deep of a run-off pond we knew the danger. Down on our knees, we thought of snorkel to intrude upon the world beyond pond’s edge. His tiny feet disappear slow while I wait …

sad

Peer my way you know

The glass now contains my friend

lily pad water

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai #665 (Sunset over the harbor)

images (1)

while wilderness winds

last remnants of sunlit sky

water glass welcome

~

a long gravel walk

road will stretch into the night

soul see sun streaked sky

~

wafting in harbor

night lights begin their sojourn

after dark we play

~

when today we cried

now watch evening shade appear

watch over our lives

Carpe Diem Tan Renga Challenge *Sho-u “spring in our country”*

This week Carpe Diem Tan Renga inspiration is a beautiful haiku by a poet Sho-u. Our goal is to add a second stanza to it.

in the centre,
mount Fuji towers up:
spring in our country

(Sho-u)

winds kindle breeze romantic

in Nature’s grasp we evolve
