Written for:  Carpe Diem #1276 – Tranquil

tranquility –
finally I have found peace,
blossoms have fallen

© Koyu-Ni (Tr. Chèvrefeuille)

“I think that in my translation the peace of mind is stronger present. With every gust of wind I am anxious that the fragile Cherry blossoms will be scattered and torn apart, but as all blossoms have fallen than my heart and mind are at peace, there is no anxiety anymore and that gives me that feeling of tranquility.

Life and dead are living together just on a thin line of silk, so close to one another, but that’s the circle of life, the beauty of Mother Nature. This is what haiku is … writing about nature and mankind as being part of it’s beauty.”

Here is my attempt:

stream of water
steady rhythmic pace and sound
provides tranquility

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
