Silent Tranquil Soul

 

Kristjaan Panneman, host of Carpe Diem challenges us with another Carpe Diem Special of this month titled “Words by Francis of Assisi ” …  “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.

Inspirational Quote:

“Remember that when you leave this earth
you can taken nothing of what you have received,
but only what you have a given: a full heart,
enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice, and courage”.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

Silent tranquil soul
Legacy of meek courage
Single white lily

∴∴∴∴∴

Nature sleeps
Carpet of silent snow
Red leaf falls
