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

Carpe Diem Haiku : KUMADANIJI

Kumadani-ji (熊谷寺?) is a Kōya-san Shingon temple in Awa, Tokushima Prefecture, Japan, where the main image is of Senjū Kannon. Guanyin or Senju Kannon in Japanese is the bodhisattva associated with compassion as venerated by East Asian Buddhists, usually as a female. The name Guanyin is short for Guanshiyin, which means “Observing the Sounds (or Cries) of the World”. She is also sometimes referred to as Guanyin. Some Buddhists believe that when one of their adherents departs from this world, they are placed by Guanyin in the heart of a lotus, and then sent to the western pure land of Sukhāvatī. Drawing inspiration out of it, comes the below Haiku.

 

Unvoiced cries

hoping to be heard; by

Mother of mercy

*

Mother of mercy!

may you lift us up

to the lotus-heart

Haiku prompt : CADENCE

Death stood there,

waiting to cease

the cadence of heart!

***

Sigh of relief

on faces of audience

at the closing cadence!

***

Frosty winter

playful summer

cadence of nature!

***

Music of  life

seemed to end its fragrance;

deceptive cadence!
