Haiku

Prophecy

drumming clouds

with the tempo of flute air-

prophecy of rain

~

the wise gypsy

with a hint of smile

feels the first drop

~

slightly fading-

the lines of my palms

I breathe still

~

rejoicing river

commune of the swans

ripples appear

.

For Carpe Diem # 345. Inspired from Adrian von Ziegler’s musical piece, Prophecy:

Standard
Haiku

Undisturbed

seeping through stones

perfected by cuckoo’s call

the light of dawn

~

moss laden trunks

embracing each other

lone squirrel runs

~

a distant roar

hurried birds flying back home

black clouds gather

~

through eternal lands

washing the gloom away

white waters frothy

.

For Carpe Diem 343.
