lighting sad departure

wings etch the sky

Chrysanthemum moon

the vast heavens a stage

this autumn night


lighting sad departure

in V-shaped formation

their piercing cries


wings etch the sky

grey shadows sliver the moon

how summer has flown!

In response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation #44, Troiku Challenge, inspired by two haiku by Buson.

bench in the park


park bench

evening meditation

with geese


in a line

gazing at eternity

a winged flock


moving as one

from shore to lake to sky

In a recent post at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Chevrefeuille shares a photo and haiku about a favourite park bench near his home. This inspired me to share these recent photos taken at a favourite park bench near my home.

The final haiku uses the word ‘interbeing’, a word coined by Thich Nhat Hahn, referring to the interconnectedness or interdependence of all life and phenomena.  I am linking this post to Frank Tassone’s Haikai Challenge #40 Independence where independence and interdependence are the themes.
