Rising Sun

cock crow opens doors
welcoming the rising sun
a flurry of dust

My response to Carpe Diem Weekend Meditation Use That Quote: rising sun

This week’s episode of the Weekend Meditationis a challnge to create haiku, tanka or haibun inspired by a quotation from René Daumal, the writer of ‘Mount Analogue’:

“The cock crowing in the milky dawn thinks its call raises the sun; the child howling in a closed room thinks its cries open the door. But the sun and the mother go their own way, following the laws of their beings. Those who see us, even though we cannot see ourselves, opened the door for us, answering our puerile calculations, our unsteady desires, and our awkward efforts with a generous welcome.” (René Daumal, Mount Analogue)
