  1. nice title...
    and if i am going to meditate, nature is usually where you find me

  2. Good day La Tonya, welcome at Carpe Diem. I am your host here. I am glad that you've found the way to Carpe Diem. This haiku on Aota is just gorgeous and I love meditating and contemplating in nature. I love wandering through the woods and make my mind empty. I think haiku is just a way to meditate in nature. Thank you for sharing your haiku with us all. Hope to see you again on Carpe Diem.

  3. Brian, it is my favorite, too. I tried but could not create the balance I wanted. I'm open to revision so maybe I'll craft other lines around it.

  10. Thank you all. I love the form. I prefer brevity. I also feel intimidated. With economy, word choice is paramount. Oh, but that's always true with poetry isn't it? :-)

  12. This is lovely. It lifted me up after reading something dark elsewhere. Bless you!

  13. I like the idea of green prayers: thoughts which grow from small beginnings into something much larger than self.
