I'm quite addicted to your series ;)

I love the contract between the clear water and the men on the boat.

Thought of completing it thus -

This moment is mine
Care not for destination
Enjoy the journey
Every moment is a destination.

Hi there, Celiene. Have not been around here for a while as I was busy with my exams.

Anyway, your blog is too good. Yes, a very beautiful picture.

Anyway, you are tagged to complete a puzzle that I've posted in my blog.

Please do post the solved puzzle in your blog.

Anyway, nice poetry!

Ms. Creek,

Yes, mindful of the journey.:)

Zhu,

For this post, the travellers aren't as important as the journey. Thank you for your kind words that are very encouraging. :)

Ajeya,

How about this:

This moment is mine
Care not for destination
Enjoy the journey
Every moment is precious.

By the way, I try to post a Haiku on Tuesdays.

Haiku, to define in few words, is a kind of Japanese poetry of 3 lines, with syllables of 5-7-5. Thank you for your nice comment. :)

Imagination:

Hi there, and hope your exam went well. I shall be over to your blog shortly, though I must add you, am not good with puzzles.

Thank you for your visit and comment here. :)

Lakshmi,

I checked your post, and loved it. It is special to me. Thanks for inviting and the lovely comment here. :)

CHEWY said...

Nice silhouettes and sparkles on the water. Also another beautiful haiku. Yes, every moment is precious.

Indrani said...

Hi Celine, i was wondering if this haiku is something where all participate... any website like the www.wordlesswednesday.com ?

AJEYA RAO said...

Nice, It is more refined. Or to make it rhyming - Every moment is my station.

Oh ok, Haiku it is....I thinks it this beauty of Haiku that leaves it to reader to think further.

chewy:

Thanks Darlene.
Yes, every moment is precious, even those spent on admiring tulips. ;)

indicaspecies said...

Indrani,

I am not aware if a website is dedicated to Haiku. However you, or anyone for that matter, are most welcome to participate in Haiku writing either as a comment here (like I do sometimes at some sites I visit), or write on your own blog. It would be a pleasure to read your composition. All the best. :)

indicaspecies said...

Ajeya,

Thanks.
I am glad to hear from you that a simple Haiku helps to feel better. :)

Nice conveying of a sound philosophy...
Precious or not, count or not, destination or station, moment remains mine; that's the only thing I have excepting of my being.
Beautiful post...I loved the comments of Ajay too....

Saibal,

Simple, sensible and yes, sound!
Thank you.:)
