HAIKU MY HEART: Summer Serenade



Inspirations:

flute concert
speaking Japanese fluently
the shakuhachi
by Jane Reichhold

sultry night
the sound of the shakuhachi
deepens the silence
by Chevrefeuille

My Haiku:
warm memories of yore
crickets serenading us
delight of fireflies

it makes them homesick 
for something they never had and never will have.”

CARPE DIEM SPECIAL #153: Old Cemetery

inspiration from Rallentanda:
a beautiful peace
I sit quietly with them  
feeling their presence

 This is in Vincennes, Indiana, at the Old Cathedral Cemetery

the peace of our Lord
felt here among those long gone
will you pass it on?

shared with Kristjaan's

Hoosier Quote:
“When I say that peace must be planned on a world basis, 
I mean quite literally that it must embrace the earth… 
It is inescapable that there can be no peace 
for any part of the world 
unless the foundations of peace 
are made secure throughout all parts of the world.”
~Wendell L. Willkie~
