Haiku 5-7-5 —Four Thoughts To Start The Day

Updated on July 15, 2012
Source





the scent of flowers

prevails in the morning air

nature sings softly



Source






to find happiness

open windows of the mind

let your dreams enter


Source



the sun still shines

behind all lingering gloom

ready to bring cheer






beginning today

reflect on gain— not what’s lost

feel life around you

      DF, these are awesome haikus. I especially liked the thought in the last one. We'd rather think about what we have rather than what we lost. Life would be so much easier to live this way.

      Excellent, my friend.

      Voted up and awesome.

      Don, this is marvelous! So rich, so vivid and the photo's were a wonderful asset to the piece. Moved me off center and promoted the kind of clarity that helps one see all the importance of living!

      Worth repeating!

      open windows of the mind

      let your dreams enter"

      Think I will.

      open windows of the mind

      let your dreams enter

      is certainly my favorite! This could be a creedo to live by. I say again, these were great and beautiful haiku.
