Like sound of title? Folk music from Tibet!

 

himalayan sound

prayer flags tune mellow song

longing for freedom

 

 

swan song on frozen pond

Carpe Diem‘s Japanese Poetry in the Lowlands features Ria Giskes


 

trumpet arrival

first blizzard’s winter whiteout

loud rushing of wings

cygnet-ure snow of season

feathers settle after storm

light snuffed out

A poem of lament, in shape of candlestick, dedicated to family of Lukas Monsma

young voice sings to guitar
sweet, yet haunting
oh, my son, I can
hear your song
on the wind

memories
don’t leave us
alone in the dark
nearly pull us apart
by plucked heart strings
strumming addicted to grief
cold, thin, mountain air
stealing our breath
mingles yours
high in sky

i’m sorry for
what was unsaid
life hangs by a thread
as we still wait for you to
turn around and come home

 

 

…and sharing music by David Nevue, “Under a Cloud” and “The Long Regret”

seeing stars

Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s stars

 

hot crystalline light

sparkling diamonds on velvet

birthed in nebula

_____

cold faceted snow

glittering sequins on lace

reflections of sun

_____

bright angelic song

praising Star-Maker who wears

royal diadem
