Komorebi

autumn forest trees. nature green wood sunlight backgrounds.

the trees stand close

sunlight filters through

the leaves dance

~

the trees stand close

a community system

life cycle renewed

~

sunlight filters through

rays kiss the forest floor

warmed mulch

~

the leaves dance

a magnificent tune plays

come dance with us

~

come dance with us

around the leave forest floor

as the sun slowly sets

Kerry is in the Garden and asks us to write poetry or prose in 55 words for Flash 55 Plus. She gave us the option of using a foreign word that has no direct translation in English save through description. I chose Komorebi which means, sunlight filters through the trees. I was liberally borrowing from haiku but varied it a little. For more interesting words go to:

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.
