Carpe Diem Haiku – Dreams


Kahlil Gibran said on dreams:

“How can I lose faith in the justice of life, when the dreams of those who sleep upon feathers are not more beautiful than the dreams of those who sleep upon the earth?”

scattered stars –
wanderer’s stuccoed ceiling
sound asleep

Furthermore he said:

“The flowers of spring are winter’s dreams related at the breakfast table of the angels”

snowy duvet –
spring is still asleep
just waiting

And also:

“I would not be the least among men with dreams and the desire to fulfill them, rather than the greatest with no dreams and no desires”

picking petals –
telling yes or maybe no
daisy meadows

  1. This is lovely and edifying. I must stretch a little and try something along these lines. I have read beautiful haiku, but have never tried the form – you (and others) set the bench mark very high. But, you never know, one of these days, perhaps.

I try to reciprocate all comments. If you want me to visit a particular post, please direct me directly to that post.
