Nature’s Spirit Haiku

solitary path

a reticent traveler

destination veiled

.

leaving the footprints

walking deep into jungle

step on fallen leaves

.

blown away a leaf

maneuvering in fast winds

a storm approaches

* Written in response of Carpe Diem Special # 41.

Into Deep Waters

Running into deep waters

full of yellow green moss

drenching my hair

coating my skin

crying out loud within

staying there forever

away from the clean world

where I do not belong

becoming my reality

accepting my truth

be free in the end

there in that mess

surrounded by my destiny

finally being who I am

running into deep waters

I hope I can

hope I will one day

be in the deep waters

amid the yellow green moss

staying there

I hope I will

run into those deep waters.
