Carpe-Diem #1252- Paradise on Earth

Wrote a 3 stanza Haiku today on the below picture by Jackie Ley of the the New Forests in Southern England as part of the Carpe Diem #1252

New Forest by Jackie Lay

 

Amidst the hustle-bustle,

A green heaven lies,

Purple specks, white butterflies…

 

Soft, it caresses, 

A lush carpet, ‘neath sprawled,

Spirit tingles, roused!

 

A mild, earthy whiff stirs,

Feel the stillness, a peace, a calm,

Hush! It’s paradise!

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai is the place to be if you like to write and share haiku, tanka or other Japanese poetry forms such as choka and kikobun. It’s a warmhearted family of haiku poets created by Chèvrefeuille, a Dutch haiku poet. Japanese poetry is the poetry of nature and it gives an impression of a moment as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water.

      Yes. Nature is beautiful. Can’t seem to get enough of it. It’s a wonder how people take it for granted. Thank you so much for the lovely comment on the poem.
