carpe diem, Poetry

beacon bright

Japanese lampions
carpe diem no. 1268 shuntoo (spring lantern)

nightfall free alight
sleepy darkness awakens
quiet kindness kiss
there by the window still bare
afar lights flaming fire

note to self… how sweet the tanka is.. the way it unfolds and sings so sweetly… hard work but worthy of every word that inspires for more…



carpe diem, troiku


floating candles.basho

carpe diem weekend meditation no 3
on the river troiku

haiku, basho
on the river
lights float to the horizon
the dead rejoice

troiku, ms pie
on the river
buoyant bound bright stars roaming
crowd the once quiet

lights float to the horizon
parallel paths heading home
soaring side by side

the dead rejoices
weightless wonders gather speed
soundless transmission

notes to self: my first troiku .. anticipation… after reading ‘the wandering spirit’, … thank you Chèvrefeuille… though first i saw the photo… the troiku unfolded in such a way… i look forward to creating more… those poems that won’t leave of their own accord… i still wanna change this .. somehow it is unfinished …
