REMINISCE

fragrant memories
strolling gently down the stream
wet leaves shine
transcending through thick darkness
arriving at a new world

tanka

copper memories
fading away
with summer leaves

haiku #1

watching leafy dancers –
better yesterdays
remembered

haiku #2

Response to Carpe Diem #1485 creating memories

NEARBY

NEARBY (day -4) 

carried upon
dawn’s fainting rays  –
a gull’s cry

haiku 

stoned silent statues
nightingales’ melodic sound
greeting morning’s dawn –
butterflies lightly tapping
outside my porthole window

tanka
