Walled Haiku and Tanka

1.   Walls shield occupants

Buffering noise,  blocking wind

Hide secrets inside.

2.   Wall restricts entries

Keeps security in mind

Bars friends,  enemies.


3.   Silence is like wall

It is not always golden

It heralds a storm

A volcanic eruption

Permanent separation.

  1. Great words and beautiful photo, as always! The imagery may continue into a poem… 🙂

  2. Your words always easily find a place of welcome in my spirit! Their beauty always works the mind to imagine what the image really adds to the life of your words…and they are always a perfect blend, that leaves one’s heart and mind in loving embrace of its blessings! So wonderful to awaken to…because it sets a beautiful tone to my day! Thanks for sharing the blessings my sister!

    • Thank you Wendell, your comments always inspire me to deliver what i feel is good and beautiful, I also feel happy when I can pass on the inspiration to my wonderful blogging friends who appreciate this gift of poetry. 🙂

  3. Oh boy, these are powerfully good, Sister. I especially cringed on the second one. God bless you abundantly today, and always. love, sis Caddo

    • We always cringe at negative thoughts especially the idea of being unwelcome, or when a loved one hides secrets from you. God bless you Sis Caddo, thank you for being a faithful friend and commenter, I will never put a dividing wall between us because I treasure your friendship!

  4. A lovely picture and poems. Ruins mean so many different things.

  5. Beautiful picture indeed, Cynthia.. and your poems are fitting very well the scenery.
    The first Ku, gives a feel of mystery…The second one more like a threat and the Tanka I think is excellent..Silence is indeed not always golden , it also often hides the unexpected and hurtful..
    Ciao, Francina

  6. Thanks for letting me camp out in your blog for a little while today. I had a great time and tried to leave my campsite as good as when I arrived. I’ll be back!
