Living Tapestry

 

 

rain drops stir from sleep

colours divers weave and sing –

making room for all

 

**********************************************************************************

Written for Heeding Haiku with Ha – A Haiku Moment. The prompt is to listen to the music, feel what it has to say to you and then write a haiku. Listening to this piece I could hear the distinct sound of both instruments and yet they came together beautifully and seamlessly. The harp reminded me of raindrops falling on dusty, lonely ground. In the eye of my mind, the voice of the violin was like streams of bright colours weaving through the air and the trees. The idea captured In the haiku is that although we are all unique, we have the potential to come together as a seamless whole, in a place where everyone belongs, both great and small. In doing so, we arise from our bed of idleness and despondency, because we realise that we are in fact not alone.

  1. The haiku, like the music, is gentle, wistful, uplifting and utterly beautiful! Your work has a truth to it that ‘tugs at the heart strings’, and reaches the place within that so seldom comes up for air in our busy lives. Thank you for sharing these glimpses of the world through your eyes. It is truly the most generous form of giving 🙂
