Carpe Diem #25 (Spring Haze)

Spring hangs in the air
The bells of the temple
vibrate into my heart

(Yesterday, I had my first massage in ages. Weary bones and aches in body. I turned myself over to my masseuse and let my mind go into the spa music. The bells (singing bowls likely) seemed to reach my heart and I wanted to write of it before reading the background for this haiku. I referred to the spa as a temple because it felt like a sacred place at the time.)


  1. Good day, what a wonderfully crafted haiku inspired on the one by Onitsura ... I hope your massage was worth it :-)

    1. So sorry am just seeing this now. Thank you for your lovely comment; and, yes, I had a great massage!
