Monday Haibun – Transition

At this time of year
it’s always in the air
A hunger I can’t define
This hunger I must abide
Spinkled with the dust of melancholy
Rounding the borders of sadness
Hoping always that it doesn’t quite come to that but,
At this time of year
it’s always in the air

another rose blooms
even as autumn holds tight –
change cares for itself

“…sadness is but a wall between two gardens…”
– Khalil Gibran

the last flower
in my garden
a sunflower

Alone

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
