Inner Voice #photography #haiku


For this Carpe Diem Sparkling Stars prompt Kristjaan  challenges us to write a classical haiku based on “Inner Voice”. We have to follow the classical rules:

5-7-5 syllables

a season word (kigo)

a cutting word (kireji), mostly interpunction in Western haiku

a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water

a deeper (spiritual/religious) meaning

*

up along the slopes
under the sun – the goats
were grazing on fire.

on the balcony
standing in a cage of sunbeams –
like a rainbow

something has happened.
the moon lit up the room.
God knew about it.

hear the sighing rain.
I whisper a secret, to reach
all the way in there.

a scene on the platform.
what a strange calm –
the inner voice

Enter the chamber

song of the fluttering leaves

a holy hush

*

Day and night meet

a scroll of light rolls open

peek at His throne

*

Incapable

 writing of your grandeur

I pen a haiku

*

I’ve experienced these scenarios this week as the weather changes and the sky goes from blue to black it is truly a moment beyond description and so I write haiku.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!
