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!
