Carpe Diem Haiku : PILGRIMAGE

Pilgrimage. The act of walking from temple to temple is where the spirituality lies, on the road, in the questions formed, the information sought, without even the forming of hypothesis. Inspired by it, is the below Haiku.

Wandering eyes

stop at a flower

Carpe Diem Haiku : EMPTINESS

Emptiness has always bewildered me. We all know that all matter is made up of indivisible particles called atoms. Each such atom ‘binds’ with other atoms to form matter. The surprising fact is that majority of content of atom is void i.e. empty space. Only a tiny portion say <10% of atom size includes the nucleus and electrons. So, largely everything we’re comprised of is empty space or emptiness!


Here comes the Haiku inspired by it.

Atoms fill the world

each atom,

an empty space!

Carpe Diem Haiku : REBIRTH

The theme is to find back that what we have lost. The author illustrates one of the first exercises called The Seed. It”s an exercise to re-live the beginning of your life. In other words with that exercise you re-live your birth. Drawing inspiration from it, below comes the haiku.

With sleep we die

the next day

sweet rebirth


sweet rebirth

regained innocence

vibrant heart
