Carpe Diem Full Circle #2-2016

falling rain
young leaves drowning down the creek
buds not opened yet


on top of mountain
silence felt as birds fly
the monk in prayers


the river so cool
with a kindly summer breeze
she gave him a smile


fresh snow falling
the sparrows flutter their wings
blue sky in town

Ancient – Daily Prompt


Ifugao people
blood and sweat used for this road
they used ancient tools

magnificent sight
primeval rice terraces
such a heritage


the ancient woman
cherry tree blooms in old age
an event to remember
© Basho (at the age of 21)

memories of glorious past
happy to leave legacy

the ancient woman
every year she blossoms
such tenacity

loves being appreciated
growing old elegantly

B&P Shadorma & Beyond – Full Circle – October 15, 2016


autumn like a dream
trees shimmer thanks to moonbeam
share tender moment

autumn like a dream
when the wind brushes the leaves
fairy tale that weaves

trees shimmer thanks to moonbeam
shades of reds, browns and yellows
autumn wind whispers

share tender moment
holding hands by the moonlight
sparkle of the night

Poetry Prompts Day 3 – OctPoWriMo 2016 – Sparkling


dazzling stars glittering
evening at a house

peaceful evening with some wine
reminiscing bygone days

candlelite dinner
hold hands under the table
her eyes are sparkling

crickets chirping by the trees
soft breeze whistling in the night

full moon reflection
lovers walk by the sea
she wears sequin dress

they promise to love each one
kiss by the light of the moon
