True Silence

creek-img_2590

my inner voice
like remnants of an echo
thrives in true silence

in the peaceful scenes
of the mountains silence reigns
melodious creek
and the wind in trees bring me
to a place of true silence

old barn
in the middle of the field
so desolate
a playground for the wind
deep silence of no where

“…There is a silence where hath been no sound,
There is a silence where no sound may be,
In the cold grave—under the deep deep sea,
Or in the wide desert where no life is found,
Which hath been mute, and still must sleep profound;
No voice is hush’d—no life treads silently,
But clouds and cloudy shadows wander free,
That never spoke, over the idle ground:
But in green ruins, in the desolate walls
Of antique palaces, where Man hath been,
Though the dun fox, or wild hyena, calls,
And owls, that flit continually between,
Shriek to the echo, and the low winds moan,
There the true Silence is, self-conscious and alone. …”

Carpe Diem Haiku : Morning Walk

Inspired by:

morning walk
summer sun beats down
on her head
breeze plays with golden tresses
covered by her silken scarf

two ruby red lips
parted in a flirty smile
tease the tired farmer
shapely form comes after dark
courtesan of midnight dreams

Peace & Spirit

Photo – That’s the moon!  Taken 2 days ago off the pier the moon was rising as the sun was setting. Awesome!

an uneasy peace
small glimpse of spirit of hope
hanging by a thread
frayed nerves huddle in witness,
interesting times are afoot

Tanka Tuesday
