Prompt From:

Carpe Diem Shaman
Carpe Diem

“That’s truly being one with nature … to have the ability to read nature’s signs. Those signs are all around us. In plain simple words I can say: As I see the buds of the cherry grow … than I know that spring is coming. Or … as I see the changing colors of leaves at the end of summer I know that autumn is coming.
Isn’t that beautiful? Let me look at our beloved haiku … what do I see? I see kigo (seasonwords) who are pointing to the season in which the haiku was written … through those kigo we can read nature … that makes the haiku not only a Japanese poetry form, but also a poetry form of the Altai Mountains, haiku is part of Tengrism … look around you …. see the signs of nature and read them … just read them.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
