one woman's terrifying and glorious leap off the cliff of midlife
nice title...and if i am going to meditate, nature is usually where you find methere is much to learn there of cycles....and i like the mid line in this...
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.
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.
Kristjaan, thank you for coming by. I enjoy your work and the thorough lessons you provide.
Absolutely gorgeous LaTonya, such a wonderful meditative poem =)
peaceful and rewarding..excellent
Lovely and serene.
lovely images painted with your words...nicely done
Lovely meditative haiku..
Beautiful! Nature is the best place to meditate, that's for sure.
Love that opening line. Nice one.
Sprouted temple...love that
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? :-)
I wish I could sit and meditate, watching that idyllic scene.
Faith and devotion...marvellous
peaceful, LaTonya ~ M
This is lovely. It lifted me up after reading something dark elsewhere. Bless you!
I like the idea of green prayers: thoughts which grow from small beginnings into something much larger than self.
