Solitude ... For One Deep Breath

Lotus, Joan Z. Rough, © 2006


Alone with myself
I open my heart to sun
A happy flower

Sitting in silence
I hear the wind moving sand
A happy stone

In the dark of night
I hear lonely hearts crying
I send them prayers

These are so soothing, and especially so knowing you've just come back from vacation. Nice.

My favourite is the third - so caring.

The first is so true for me - it is so muc easier to open my heart when I am alone.

After catching my breath on that photo I took a read. Happy flowers, rocks and prayers. Awesome!

Welcome home! These are stunning haiku and the photo - WOW, as always you just knock my socks off with your photography. I love the way your haiku progress - they flow so nicely.

Your previous post about your vacation brought back lots of memories. We used to go to Toronto almost yearly for vacation. The Stratford Festival is also a big favorite of ours - it's only about 3 hours away, so we go quite often. It's a great little town. And I am totally with you on the resting part of vacation - very important!
