Haiku# Carpe Diem Time Glass #30 summer solstice

Carpe Diem Time Glass #30 summer solstice

We were supposed to write a haiku, tanka, kyoka or haibun (or haiga) inspired with this prompt and photo and to submit that within 24 hours. Here’s my response to this beautiful & awe-inspiring photograph.

A feast to rejoice
whispering mythic prayer
uphold  & nurture peace

countless time glass
chimes in reverberation
welcomes sun kissed sky

my banjaran* soul
trekked eternity, pause
timeless Nature’s mystique

banjaran* a lady nomad/vagrant traveler

  1. All have a wonderful charm and grace, but I somehow personally liked the last one the most 🙂
    Don’t know the reason…the word ‘banjaran’ perhaps..?

  2. “mythical pauses, whispering mythic and trekked eternity”…these are some of the very powerful and profound thoughts beautifully encapsulated in words.
    Indeed it is an incredible picture and superbly reflected in your Haiku.

      1. After all the purpose of writing and the vehicle of free expression is to enjoy and make life more lively. Haiku is quick and brings so much emotions in so much less words.
        Reading and writing is about getting inspired and making others inspire…
        love it. take care…
