Haiku's: A new life and Wishes


Carpe Diem #722 buried in moss



When I read this wonderful episode, two images dominated my mind. The first one was of moss covered letters and the second was of moss covered rocks at the bottom of a pond. Here are two Haiku's based on these images.

A new life

Under pink blossoms
Holding moss covered letters
Posing for flashes


Wishes

Rocks covered in moss
Bottom of the temple pond
Hide wishes in coins

I am eternally grateful to Chèvrefeuille for the daily Haiku prompts at

  1. The moss-covered rocks draw my attention. I wouldn't mind sitting on their cushioned surface!

  2. Temple ponds probably hold a lot more things than coins...some hidden wisdom, for instance.

  3. Both are really great Vyomi, but your second haiku is very strong and very spiritually layered.

Congratulations on completing a decade at work!!!

I had one of my ex-project managers complete a decade of service at work so wrote the below poem to congratulate him on this momentous occasion.


Heartiest congratulations! A decade's time for a big celebration!
Ten illustrious years, For your glorious career we all cheer!
A decade of service, Your wealth of experience- priceless.
Countless challenges triumphed, Your boundless energy has everyone pumped.
Your inclusive leadership style, Makes everyone feel worthwhile.
Empowering us to excel, And chart paths novel.
An action oriented leader, Who is more than a manager.
A mentor and motivator, Whom to emulate we aspire.
Working with you has been truly inspiring and awesome, Best wishes for many more magnificent years to come!

Want to express gratitude to your doctor for everything he/she has done for you and are at a loss of words? Why not use instant poet's poem below to express your thanks?

Your tireless energy and positive countenance, Like a beacon to a sinking ship bring joy in abundance.
Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart, You are the best! A class apart!
Words are too small to express my gratitude, For you have you as my doctor I feel blessed with eternal beatitude.
