Shuukan – Haiku – November 2, 2014

In this week’s Carpe Diem Shuukan prompt we begin a spiritual voyage … through the mantra:Om Mani Padme Hum … Here’s the meaning of the mantra explained to us by Chèvrefueille:

Om purifies bliss and pride (realm of the gods); Ma purifies jealousy and need for entertainment (realm of the jealous gods); Ni purifies passion and desire (human realm); Pad purifies ignorance and prejudice (animal realm); Me purifies greed and possessiveness (realm of the hungry ghosts); Hum purifies aggression and hatred (hell realm).


The Shuukan prompt is to write a haiku for OM.

Rain drops

early morning
silence before the rising sun
raindrops on a branch

  1. Just beautiful — I think you’ve captured the direction of this prompt very well. Still loving that photograph — one of your best imho, and the haiku really captures purity so well.
