Carpe Diem – River Stones

Kristjaan Panneman, host of Carpe Diem challenges us with the first Carpe Diem Special of this month titled “river stones” …  “The goal of this Special is to write a new haiku in the same sense, tone and Spirit as the one given of the featured haiku-poet. Garry writes his haiku in the non-classical style, so you don’t have to use the classical syllables-structure 5-7-5, but if you like … of course you may use the classic count.”

Garry Gay’s Inspiration:

river stones
along her garden path
wet with dew


River stones
Caressed by flowing water
Pale moon shines


Beach pebbles
Washed by surges flow
Cleanse my soul
