Carpe Diem’s “Remember This Music?”

The goal of this new feature on Carpe Diem is to write a four stanza renga, inspired on the song of our choice. I found it really challenging so here we go…

husky whispers
keeps tickling my ear
weariless till dawn

smell of diesel in the dust
deserts dream about untamed roads

“Thunderbird’ s” roar
before your silhouette 
in the doorway

unable to resist fervor
-slipping off my new red shoes

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Carpe Diem Special *Words said by Francis of Assisi*

This week the source of our inspiration on Carpe Diem Special are words by Francis of Assisi:

[...] “All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.” [...]

Here’ s my haiku where I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
endless dance
with lurking shadows
-flame of a candle
