Carpe Diem Haiku – Pilgremage again


When you walk a mountain path the first time, climbing uphill, surprises hidden by the mountain itself, a rare flower, a bird crossing my path, or just a rock formed like an old man. It reminds me how the mountain path is like life itself. Small surprises hidden, but still the path leads uphill and once we reach the top a new view, new mountains and more paths lead onward. In reality I know it doesn’t matter where it leads, within its the path and not it’s end that make the difference.

around the bend
yet another sweet surprise
the path leads on
