Carpe Diem Haiku *Shiki ‘A Flash of Lightning”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Masaoka Shiki:

* * *
a flash of lightning;
between the trees of the forest,
water appears

* * *

And now – my humble attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
stroked by lightning
delicate peaks of sand dunes
silence before storm

* * *
