The Ferryman

journey of the soul
listening to the river
enlightened and whole

Kim M. Russell, 2016

My response to Carpe Diem #1109 Siddharta’s Journey by Guy Sweens

Today Chèvrefeuille has shared a piece of music called ‘Siddharta’s Journey’ by Guy Sweens, a Dutch composer of New Age and Fusion music, together with his own re-written cascading haiku, which he has turned into a set of tanka:

in the light of dawn
the world looks mysterious
a new day begins
the sweet sounds of birds singing
in the light of dawn

walking the path
from richness to poverty
enlightened Buddha
reaching for the deep truth of life –
walk his path
