A Single Star


* * *
after fireworks
the silence of a single star
marking the new path

* * *

More warmth to bring to each other,
more white thoughts, love and peacefulness.
More belief in the road ahead, full of adventures – expected and unexpected ones.
And the light of a dream – like a burning candle through the darkness.
Happy New 2016!

Haibun Monday *The Path*


I have always thought there is nothing similar to the feeling of walking barefoot through a meadow on a summer morning when everything around is just about to wake up. The glistening dew drops, softly bending the blades of grass. Petals of the blossoms, still moist before opening and longing to be caressed by the first ray of light. The wonder to be a part of all that magic every step of the way is almost tingling – as nature’s energy flows in, resonating from toes through every cell of my body.
If there’s anything close to that experience, it is the touch of the beach. Either tiptoeing through the sun scorched sand to the edge of water or just enjoying the tickle and tease of waves. Whispering, alluring or maybe simply teaching to feel. Yes, to notice and understand, to admire, appreciate and never to destroy. Isn’t it one of the paths to find harmony – not only with people around but with nature and oneself in the first place? I am still learning that and, most probably, I always will. Without a pair of shoes, left somewhere far behind…

fresh footprints in the wet sand
