Carpe Diem Special *Words said by Francis of Assisi (4)*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week are words by Francis of Assisi:

[…] “A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows.” […]

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

* * *
after storm
all cracks in the roof
filled with light

* * *

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Carpe Diem Haiku *Basho ”how rare!”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Matsuo Basho:

* * *
how rare!
on leaving the mountain
the first eggplant

* * *

The following ones are my attempt to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
old oak-tree shade
nurtured in maze of roots
black summer truffle

* * *
double rainbow
arches across stormy sky
time to count blessings

* * *

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai

Carpe Diem Haiku *Issa ”O cooling melons!”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem today is a haiku, written by Kobayashi Issa:

* * *
if anyone comes,
turn into frogs,
o cooling melons!

* * *

The following ones are my attempt not to wander too far away from the mood and spirit of the haiku above:

* * *
trail of cool droplets
rolling down ignited skin
-melon scented ice cubes

* * *
after the storm
bouncing through the flooded field
a watermelon

* * *
