It’s time again for a Quadrille over at the Pub . The theme is ‘leaves’

The Magician
chewing on leaves
until show time –
hanging upside down,curling
your body into a J, wrapping
yourself in a gold studded shell
no cheap parlor trick – this
is the real thing –
you emerge
wearing a black and orange
cloak and
fly away

rain songs

Carpe Diem #1034 “let the rain kiss you”

[…] “Let the rain kiss you. Let the rain beat upon your head with silver liquid drops. Let the rain sing you a lullaby.” […] Langston Hughes

inside my small tent
ancient melodies recalled
rain taps a sweet song

this moment

Carpe Diem #1031 “live in the present”

[…] “Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.” […] Buddha


wild gray wolf
lives only in the moment
howling at the moon


Carpe Diem #1030 “path”

inspiration for today is from a very talented haiku poet

[…] “Ah…and then there’s the path, always the path, there, to concentrate on.. ” […] Hamish Managua Gunn

abandoned temple
crumbled stones along the path
only weeds remain


Carpe Diem #1029 – “felt with the heart”

this is the quote for inspiration in this episode of Carpe Diem:

[…] “The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” […] Hellen Keller
only her heart knows
the love he leaves behind –
noble warrior
