Seven Springs Ago


Seven springs ago
I knelt in awe and wonder
where bright flowers bloomed.
Where bright flowers bloomed,
I worshiped as a pilgrim,
seeking holy signs.
Seeking holy signs,
I felt as though a feather
had swept clean my soul.

  1. This string of haikus sounds like a crystal clear journey towards soul purification. I find it adorable – not only as ideas, but also as words you have chosen and composition you have made!

  2. MMT!!!!! I must say I think you’ve outdone yourself with the poetry! Seriously, this is the best you’ve created in my opinion. “A feather”…sweeping my soul clean. Awesome.

    And your flower is stunning. Deep rich colors.

  3. Beautiful flowers. But, I am not familiar with these. What are they called?

    Thank you for taking over Ruby Tuesday when Mary left. I returned from my sick leave to find her gone and was very distressed. I stumbled on this new version by accident and it made me day.

  4. Lovely verse and lovely flowers–Just stunning writing—

    Regards and best wishes
