Unseen Mystery

The prompt from One Deep Spirit last week was around the mystery of nature. This week the prompt expands to the unseen mystery.

Gentle leading wind
Singing songs long forgotten
Who will join the dance?

Invisible veil
Dancing atop the tree boughs
Gibbous moon watches

Meditation on a Dahlia

Dahlia center
Unfolding meditation
Labyrinth flower
Walk in silence

Yugen: Haiku of Mystery

The prompt from the One Deep Breath was to create a haiku in the spirit of yugen. Yugen is haiku that speaks of the mystery in nature.

Here's mine, orginally posted at Check It Out.

Messenger spirit
Waving summertime greetings
Twilight clouds gather

The feedback from this poem and my photo sparked my desire to have my own blog dedicated to personal writing.
