Summer Haiku
Don Iannone

1
white-capped mountain peak
high above where all dreams sleep
sun smiles at the top

2
lonesome dove appears
morning awakens the world
lantern flame burns down

3
cross-legged old man sits
letting go of all troubles
then his own light shines

Don, I really like this one!!
I could see it all in my imagination and I thought of a hidden Indian village or some small Japanese village? Was it just something that came to you or did you describe a place you know?

(1) reminds me of my childhood days of dreams and eagerness for everything and admiration for god.

(2) of first love, then loosing it.

(3) of a sage...in meditation.

Really great!
I especially love the last one!
"cross-legged old man sits
letting go of all troubles
then his own light shines"
If only all people were so lucky!!

Can you really cross your legs wise man? Mine go right to sleep!
Speaking of which...

homo escapeons...thanks for your comments.

Yes, indeed I can cross my legs and meditate for a good long time. Been doing this for a while. It all comes with practice.
