Carpe Diem Time Machine *rough sea*

This time on Carpe Diem Time Machine we are looking back at a haiku, written by Basho. It was a part of his haibun “The Narrow Road to the Deep North”:

* * *
the rough sea
flowing toward Sado Isle
the River of Heaven

* * *

Here’ s my attempt not to wander too far from the same mood and spirit:

* * *
an empty boat
drifting along moonlit path
to the other shore

* * *

Ese’ s Weekly Shoot&Quote Challenge – Empty

My challenge is my passion – a photo you have taken and a quote, attributed to its author, and of course related to your image. Every week on Sunday I will post a new prompt. 

My apologies for a sudden “empty week” in between – for personal reasons it was difficult to get to blogging. 

I want to thank my fellow bloggers who have already become a part of this challenge. Everyone’ s welcome to join! All you have to do is:

– create a post of your own with the title Ese’s Weekly Shoot & Quote Challenge – Empty;
– include a link to this post also for others to find you.

Let your ideas flow and enjoy!  Ese

Prompt 25 – EMPTY

There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time. There is always something to see, something to hear. In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot. /John Cage/
