Edge of Cold #haiku #photography #poem #storms

 

At Carpe Diem we were just introduced to Otagaki Rengetsu (1791-1895) A female poet who knew well the pains and suffering of the sojourner.

Upon
frost-withered arrowroot
pelting
vying hailstones—
the cold within the sound.

~ Otagaki Rengetsu

holding its breath

nature waits on the edge of today

An excellent and appropriate prompt for the day “Cold within the sound” for Chevrefeuille’s Carpe Diem

 

Somber

What will I do with this day?

Oh so full of  grey

Is there any life around?

listen – is there sound?

***

Is that fragrance spring?

a twitter with a ring

blossom peaking out her head

or is all dead?

***

a mere ray of light

birds taking flight

will life  re-bound?

is that green on the ground?

***

So easily does the gloom

over my life loom

no sense in this day

seems meaningless and grey

***

When all seems as loss

I measure the cost

and realize

I still have breath for this day

Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before. - Edgar Allan Poe
