Hooked on Haiku – Philosophically yours

5 May

Lives & Living


Mind and faith marry

a spiritual bell heard 

with the ring of truth


Oil Pastel on black paper

Oil Pastel on black paper

Entering the ring 

with apprehension and fear

feel the knock-out punch 


 *     *     *

Encircled by love

in  life, death, eternally

it’s all that matters

 *     *     *

    Each Haiku is a wonderful take on the prompt Judith, all ringing out loud with wisdom.

    All strong and well done, the third one rang and resonated most for me.

      My wish is that the third haiku resonates most for everyone. Thanks so much.

    I am so happy to see you writing Haiku..at Haiku Horizons..

      I’m writing Haiku periodically and some of the time haven’t put my link on the Horizon site. Sometimes it’s just too much to visit everyone’s sites and make comments.
