CD: Garry Gay's "Along the Way"

Carpe Diem Special #62

The goal is to write a new haiku in the same sense, tone and spirit as the inspirational haiku by Garry Gay.

along the way
an old oak branch
becomes a walking stick

My inspired haiku:

Photo by Grace Beam (Lowest pool is crown chakra)

vision quest
seven pools in canyon
become chakras

(My first ceremony in Sedona was hiking a canyon path to cleanse my chakras. After the ceremony I was shown the seven different shaped pools that are known as the chakras. The pool most filled with water that day went with the chakra most needing work, coincidentally or not ~ my throat chakra.) 



  1. Loved the reference to chakras :-)

  2. This haiku is simply masterful. You have joined spirituality,health and nature together as one. Wonderful.

  3. Very nice haiku Maggie ...I like the reference to the chakras and that makes this haiku a spiritual masterpiece. Namaste.

  4. interesting on the pools and their meaning...what a cool quest you went on rather fascinates me....

    1. It fascinated me too, Brian. I knew I had to go there to integrate through internal messages. So watching it play out was very cool.

  5. I loved your reference to the chakras.

  6. Thank you for sharing your experience with us Grace...wonderful :)
