Morning Haiku and Waka – April 20, 2015


tumbling water
falling creates new paths
feeding the river
meeting water creatures – flows
and finally reaches the sea

the rain falls
upon the stones and flowers
soft water falls

life’s web
every creature united
by unseen strands

majestic ocean
tumbling water fall
placid lake
all united in life’s web
– this tiny drop of rain

sweet melody
in the warm summer forest
waterfall symphony
with an insect chorus
a hymn to joy

This post was inspired by Carpe Diem Haiku Kai – Time Glass Challenge and is linked to Haiku Shuukan as well.  From Haiku Shuukan:

“All conflicts around the globe emerge from the same delusion, the illusion of separateness, but all is connected and we all are part of it. To recognize and acknowledge that we are part of it is the first what we have to do. And not only based on the concept. We have to decide that we are touched by it”.

Joan Halifax

I was looking for the waterfall scene from the French film “Minuscule” which I couldn’t find … but I found this series of shorts about the little creatures created by Hélène Giraud e Thomas Szabo and thought I’d share it with you all!
