Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars *Jack Kerouac’s “The Summer Chair”*

This week the source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars are haiku, written by a poet of French-Canadian heritage Jack Kerouac (1922-1969). From all the haiku, chosen by our host Chèvrefeuille, the following one felt the most powerful to me:

* * *
The summer chair
rocking by itself
In the blizzard

* * *

I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit when writing mine:

* * *
shivering
in the garden hammock
a raindrop

* * *

Carpe Diem Special *Jack Kerouac’s “glow worm”*

This week our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Special  is a haiku, written by Jack Kerouac:

* * *
glow worm
sleeping on this flower –
your light’s on

* * *

The following  ones are mine – an attempt  to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
twinkling
brighter than fireflies
your eyes

* * *
path in forest
illuminated by fireflies
your silhouette

* * *
