Carpe Diem Theme Week (3) – Troiku – February 18, 2016

shadows

in an instant
the hills are gone – a bright light
intense darkness

in an instant
the passing of a life
illumination

the hills are gone – a bright light
all remembered
all understood

intense darkness
the wheel of Samsara turns
a new life is born

pushes its head into life
spring welcome

Carpe Diem #884 on our way home: the scent of early rice, the tomb also shakes, autumn coolness, red more red, a lovely name, how pitiful

finally spring
one tulip after another blooms
rainbow garden
