And so it was

This stern unrelenting soul
That did things his way

Blowing in the wind
Free at last
Ashes to ashes

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.

worries drowned in wine
come back to life

rising
with the sun,
morning glory –
regrets on hold
