cloud of crows
blacken winter sky –
his last day

huge cloud of ravens
has blacken late winter sky –
ashes to ashes

Remembrance Cherita

And so it was

This stern unrelenting soul
That did things his way

Blowing in the wind
Free at last
Ashes to ashes

For Thotpurge Micropoetry Month

&

For Carpe Diem Haiku where the challenge is to write a poem (usually not a cherita) inspired by verse below. For further reading on that prompt go here.

 

Then to this earthen Bowl did I adjourn
My Lip the secret Well of Life to learn:
And Lip to Lip it murmured – “While you live
Drink ! – for once dead you never shall return.

Inevitable Journey

deep into autumn
color of the fallen leaves fade
gone are illusions
inevitable journey
a path we all have to take
