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.

Inspired from the musical piece titled, Ashes, by Adrian von Ziegler:

Standard
Renga

Slow down

the Buddha himself

did not start enlightened

he walked the path

.

coursing through valley of life

slow down and enjoy the scene

.

The haiku is written by Cathy Tenzo of Haiku Plate Special, complimenting it are the two lines written by me, thereby completing the renga. For Carpe Diem Tan Renga Month Challenge # 21.
