Morning Haiku and Waka – Harmony – April 23, 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

 

a walk into clouds
from this dark inner self – light
first rays of dawn
harmony and wind-song
oasis from life’s chaos

harmony and peace
in the still silence of dawn
a whippoorwill sings

tumbling waterfall
this harmony in chaos
life is sweet

Harmony can be found in a moment of chaos or an instant of silence.  At one with yourself, beyond pretension and ambition, the understanding of what is rather than the gasping search of an unattainable presumed perfection of what should be. That instant of harmony hearing the sweet chorus of the here and now is the end and the beginning of life’s voyage.

even in this chaos
a single moment of peace
cicada love songs

Inspired by Chèvrefeuille’s wonderful post dedicated to Harmony at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai:

let shine the light
don’t hide it under a bowl –
share the Light of the World

finding peace of mind
the soothing sound of rippling water
the rustling of leaves

the rustling of leaves
strengthens my tired mind
that’s fortitude

that’s fortitude
deep inner peace, the beating of my heart,
the music of life

the music of life
caught in the rippling stream –
finding peace of mind

  1. Grazie cara, our zen master!! truly you breath it and are able to give us this calm…your tanka and haiku are soothing images of being at one, in harmony…I have reached this calm so often by the rapids, the powerful noise of water rushing …bringing me gradually to such a calm, I hear nothing but my heart beat.
