November sunrise, Sonoran Desert, Southern Arizona

Drumming up the sun,
novice kindles holy fire—
still the master sleeps.

  1. Wish I could sleep that soundly. Nice response. And I always love your photographs of the Sonoran desert.

  2. Who would sleep through that sunrise?

      What wonders me is why the master was able to sleep through the drumming! (See, poets don’t know everything about what they write!)

      Thank you. This is one of those pieces that took forever to come together, so your kind words are much appreciated.

  3. what a beautiful sunrise, i would want to be wide awake for it

    much love…

  4. Beautifully done, Mystic.

    Reminds me a bit of the sorcerer’s apprentice.


  5. Last week, in my African drum circle, a baby slept soundly thru the drumming, until we stopped….very cool stuff

  6. Am happy to miss the sunrise…beautiful haiku and so nice to visit you again. Am up before sunrise these days but no real view of sunrise mid-town. Giggling and saying NO a lot.

  7. Well penned ~ and lovely photography ~ thanks, carol, xxx

  8. As is the master’s right 🙂

  9. delightful moment – a very sleepy master…or maybe pretending to sleep. 😉
