Haiku for One Single Impression

One Single Impression posts: Christine of Quiet Paths shares a section of the Pablo Neruda poem "Ode to a Waterfall" to acccompany this week's prompt, inner voice.


bewildering thoughts
indefinite and unsure
voice retreating


~~


hide and seek
the voice of spirit
silent song

Great words on the inner experiences - its fleetingness and all.

Ah sweet mystery of life.

Thank you for frequent visits and kind comments on my babbling blogs.

Sue, this is sad.
It reminds me of an old Hank Williams song, YOUR CHEATING HEART

"...YOU'LL CRY AND CRY AND TRY TO SLEEP
BUT SLEEP WON'T COME THE WHOLE NIGHT THROUGH.."

where sleep is an alternative for when our inner voice fails us. Here sleep as an escape also failed.

These were wonderful...I especially connected with the second one with its "hide and seek". Beautiful image, too!

Your inner voice won't talk, mine won't shut up, I will trade you.

Love your colors.

Great images - both visual and verbal.

I'm constantly in battle with my inner voice. I think your first haiku resonates with me best. Well verbalized. Have a great day.

Both experiences are familiar and delicately descriabed. I especially like the hide and seek voice waiting to be found.

I admire so your ability to come up with words so rich and yet grounded in simplicity.
