Summer Haiku
By Don Iannone

1
flute sounds drift lonely
pagoda releases peace
time loses meaning

2
wild rose buds unfold
one thorn plucks out another
handle life gently

3
redemption draws nigh
black birds silhouette the sky
light slips through darkness

a mountain when I am on vacation.

Absolutely Wonderful Haiku! :o)

Yes, a very beautiful Haiku poem Don. I myself don't know much about poetry, but at least, I enjoy yours very much reading them.

And yes, may that day come soon that all of us will find his/her way towards redemption. May thorns be plucked out and the blackness in a man's life become only just a tiny silhouette in the far far distance of time to the benefit of the flute and the pagoda wherein time becomes timeless.

May we all speedily experience such a wonderful moment as everyone of us has it in his/her own hands to bring it near or not.

Margie...How? Just do. How about you? You're firing them out at a steady clip. Yes, mountain...especially since you live in Colorado.

Don Iannone said...

Kathleen...the thorn idea hails from retreating Dan. I just figured a way to use it in poetry. Thanks.

Don Iannone said...

Jon Cox...thank you and welcome to Conscious Living.

Don Iannone said...

Kai...you are quite prolific and inspire us all...sincerely.

Don Iannone said...

Bernadette...thank you and nice follow-on. There is poetry in you. I can tell. Just let it flow without judgment.

After I read your Haiku I had a thought to share with you

Tale of roses
Cries with dew abundance
Yet blossoms with sunshine

Don Iannone said...

You're welcome Gangadhar. Makes me sad to think so many beautiful people were lost. May their souls sing sweetly in the next step of their journey.

Don Iannone said...

iamnasra...thank you, and such sweet words...like nectar. Any word from Amias?

Thanks, Don. Enjoyed your verses, especially that on silence, I have one entitled The Kingdom Of Decimated Bells (decibels...!) in May, check it out. Yes, we need to learn to get beyond ourselves, there is always always more beyond......bless you Don.
