Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
For me, and simply, these are two of your best, for the imagery, classical nature, depth and timelessness as well as meanings. Wonderful.
Wow those monks are busy tonight! I 'borrowed' them from the Teacher too. They are so handy to have around! Your first poem delighted me. I had an image of our monks hanging out behind the monastery tasting honey! :)Meditation on Soft Rain
Originally I had the monks making candles to light the honeycombs beneath the monastery but couldn't find any references to that. Although there is a famous monastery that is built like a honeycomb. Hmmm, gained way too much info on this prompt.
amazing how essential a tiny bee is to humanity. excellent haiku :)
Really those monks look like bees always busy. Thank you for your daily effort.
My pleasure to follow your lead, Kristjaan.
you brought us to a specific setting & experience in so few words - wonderful!
You almost led me to believe that eating tiny, ancient bees was the best form of nourishment for humanity! (Just kidding!)Honeyed Words
Hahaha...that leap in haiku ;-O
Great haiku moment..
Tiny ancient bee...it's like a phrase that rounds everything up. Beautiful!
