Carpe Diem – Sacrifice – May 12, 2014

“Every haiku-poet wrote a Jisei or Deathpoem. Sacrifice to the max. Living our life fully as a haiku-poet, close to nature giving up all luxery, looking for that one moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water to write THE all time perfect haiku … day in, day out … that’s sacrifice.”

treading through heavy snow
way of the brush

it’s become a habit
bowing to the west
New Year’’s dawn

fallen ill on a journey
my dreams
wander over withered fields

 walk into night
moonset and starless sky
without a map
© g.s.k.

blinding light
in a nightmare’s story
before the night
© g.s.k.

winding path
leads only forward
to unknown lands
© g.s.k.

soldiers stalking
in the darkness of night
prayers raise silently
© g.s.k.
