field of daisies
arms spread wide
dancing in the wind

field of daisies
laughing at the sun
makes her smile

arms spread wide
Om Tat Sat

dancing in the wind

Carpe Diem Haiku Kai “Spirituality”

Devotion (haibun)

Since she was a young child she would often whisper a short prayer on her way to school such as The Lord’s Prayer with the image of her grandfather in her mind’s eye and this practice continued as an adult on her way to work.  In the past year she has been chanting her personal mantra with the image of Amma; sometimes her grandmother’s and mother’s images seem to slip in without her control.

Now she simply begins her mantra with the image of Amma and if her grandmother and mother want to slip in, she just goes with the flow. It is a wonderful way to start her day at work. In many ways she feels protected from some of the pain and suffering of her daily work.

chanting her mantra
filled with devotion

three mothers protect her
love bursts in tears
