Empty Echoes

in an empty house

the tock of a ticking clock

reverberating

reminder of remaining

seconds, minutes, days and years

My response to Carpe Diem #1043 emptiness

Today we are starting with the spring  section of “A Dictionary of Haiku” by Jane Reichhold and the prompt is emptiness, a very strong idea within Zen Buddhism that’s also part of haiku. Chèvrefeuille has shared haiku by Jane to inspire us:

nothing fills
the emptiness of the question
where are they?

the empty nest
my daughter’s house
after the wedding

  1. I have them packed away now but I have lots of knick knacks that belong to my great grandma and grandma and when I put them out because they are so old they remind me of when I lived on the Dairy Farm with my grandparents and worked every summer long…in the dry TX heat…a time that most have forgotten. thanks for helping me to remember a simpler time. ❤ Kat
