CD: What Is Freedom?

Carpe Diem ~ Liberation




false freedom
lifetime to break away
no more puppet strings

***

how the butterfly flits from flower to flower

***

vortex wind awhirl
cleanses the past from my pores
brings oneness to mind

  1. a tiny vortex
    I breakaway from the pull
    of a butterfly



    Your haiku is so rich in words and inspiration that I couldn't resist creating one in the same spirit.

    I love your one line

    1. Thank you, Brian. Am just playing with the one lines right now and glad you like it. The vortex winds in Sedona are undefinable. They just feel like raw joy swirling around.

  5. All three were good, but the first was my favorite. Puppet strings really do create a false freedom.

  6. Cleansing winds can be invigorating, inspiring a yearning for freedom. Just beware of lurking puppet strings. Lovely haiku.

  8. such great imagery! I love the puppet strings, and the cleansing of the past from the pores -- that evokes a feeling of deep down clean. :)

  9. That one liner is perfect Grace!

    Your first made me think of how often we struggle to be liberated only to wonder why once we achieve it.
