Carpe Diem #885 without you: Stone Mountain, at Yamanaka, from this day on

companion gone
savoring of the journey
took a turn
lone footsteps

“…I felt deeply in my heart both the sorrow of one that goes and the grief of one that remains, just as a solitary bird separated from his flock in dark clouds, and wrote in answer:

from this day on
dew will erase the writing
on my hat

Phot of a very noisy bird,  singing away as though I wasn’t there.

This post is in response to a prompt from Carpe Diem Haiku  The prompt is :  alone

wave after wave
one is never alone
on the beach

time in reflection
listening to the sounds in nature
not truly alone
