Carpe Diem Haiku *Oneness*

When I saw “oneness” is the new prompt for Carpe Diem today, somehow “Warrior of the Light” by Paulo Coelho came to my mind. Particularly –  some lines from the book:
“He might dance down the street on his way to work, gaze into the eyes of a complete stranger and speak of love at first sight, or defend an apparently absurd idea. Warriors of light allow themselves days like these.
He is not afraid to weep over ancient sorrows or feel joy at new discoveries. When he feels that the moment has arrived, he drops everything and goes off on some long-dreamed-of adventure. When he realises that he can do no more, he abandons the fight, but never blames himself for having committed a few unexpected acts of folly.
A warrior does not spend his days trying to play the role that others have chosen for him.”

crowded streets
touching each other imperceptibly
many onenesses

* * *
every morning
different face in the mirror
pieces of my puzzle

* * *
shadows of labyrinths
searching for the light within
spotless mind

* * *
fingerprint reader
laptop recognizes
my oneness
