The Awakening

#Haiku Happenings #13: Kim Russell’s latest #tanka for Carpe Diem!

writing in north norfolk

in the fading night
your face was laden with dreams
fluttering eyelids
the rise and fall of your chest
and our curious kisses

Kim M. Russell, 2018

My response to Carpe Diem #1400 The Awakening, a love poem by Rumi

In the final regular episode of March, our inspiration is a love poem written by Rumi and translated by Deepak Chopra:

The Awakening

In the early dawn of happiness
you gave me three kisses
so that I would wake up
to this moment of love

I tried to remember in my heart
what I’d dream about
during the night
before I became aware
of this moving
of life

I found my dreams
but the moon took me away
It lifted me up to the firmament
and suspended me there
I saw how my heart had fallen
on your path
singing a song
